Forward TWU GMail (email) to another email address

While it is possible to forward TWU GMail to another email account, it is not recommended. TWU GMail messages are more likely to arrive in the inbox, rather than spam. Smart phones allow for multiple email accounts, and there is a GMail app that can act as a mobile email client.

  2. At the top right, click the gear icon.

  10. In the Gmail account, reload the page in the web browser.
  11. On the same Forwarding and POP/IMAP page in Settings, select Forward a copy of incoming mail and verify the email address is in the drop-down menu.

  13. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
