Hi

I would like to receive all the incoming emails sent to the email addresses I've got from proz (e.g. myaccount1@myowndomain.com; myaccount2@myowndomain.com) in my gmail account (which is mybeautifulname@gmail.com).

Could someone give me a detailed-step by step- info to do that? I will appreciate it!

Thanks a lot!

Clarisa

You can add a forwarder for each account Dec 23, 2008

Hi Clarisa,

This can be achieved through the use of forwarders.

In your control panel, click the Mail icon on the main screen. Click "Fowarders" on the mail menu. Finally, click "[Add Forwarder]" on the next page.

Use the resulting form to enter a forwarder for each account ( Note that you only need to enter the prefixes. eg: myaccount1, myaccount2, etc.) to be sent to your Gmail account. Be sure to enter the full Gmail account address in the destination box.

Once this is done you can use Gmail's web interface to further organize your messages based on the recipient address if you so desire.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Andrew

Sorry, I managed to find that information Dec 23, 2008

It was where it should be: at SETTINGS > ACCOUNTS > Get mail from other accounts

I'm very sorry I bothered you. All the needed info was where it should be. My mistake!

Merry Christmas!

Gmail's fetching system not recommended Dec 23, 2008

Dear Clarisa,

While Gmails ability to log into your existing accounts is handy, it doesn't resolve the issues of managing your accounts locally also. This way you'd need to take care of both your gmail account and each of the local accounts. Essentially, you'd receive each message twice. Once locally and then again when gmail connects to retrieve the messages.

By using forwarders instead, you no longer have to manage the accounts via your control panel. Your messages are simply delivered straight to Gmail in a single transaction.

Best regards,
Andrew

Great! So there are two methods, aren't they? Dec 23, 2008

The first one, using the forwarders from my own account, or the second one, using the gmail settings.

You are great, Andrew! As usual!

Many thanks!

Clarisa
