Step 2 - Click Add Forwarder.
Note: You can also use the Add Domain Forwarder feature. This will forward every email sent to the specified domain to the equivalent email at a second domain (e.g. emails sent to [email protected] will be forwarded to [email protected] )

Step 3 - Add the username you want to forward, select the domain, then in the Forward to Email Address field add the email address you want emails forwarded to. Click Add Forwarder to complete.
In this example, all emails sent to '[email protected]' will also be forwarded to '[email protected]'.

Note: If '[email protected]' was a valid email account, any emails would be sent both to this account and also to '[email protected]'. If the first email account didn't exist, the email would only be sent to the gmail address.
