Forwarding Email

Connect Google Workspace allows you to forward your e-mail to another account; you can also opt to leave a copy of the forwarded messages in your Connect Google Workspace Inbox. We provide instructions below for Forwarding Mail using Connect Google Workspace:

  1. Using the Google Workspace Web client, log into your Connect Google Workspace account that you want to forward from.
  2. At the top right, click the gear icon Settings.
  3. Select Settings -> All Settings.
  4. Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  5. Click Add a forwarding address in the “Forwarding” section.
  6. Enter the email address you want to forward to ("receiving" account).
  7. For your security, Google will send a verification email to that address. Open the receiving account and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team. If you’re having trouble finding it, check your Spam folder.
  8. Click the verification link in that email.
  9. Back in your Connect Google Workspace account, reload the page in your web browser - look for the reload icon Reload.
  10. On the same Forwarding and POP/IMAP page in Settings, check that Forward a copy of incoming mail to is selected and your email address is in the first drop-down menu.
  11. In the second drop-down menu, choose what you want Google to do with your messages after they’re forwarded, such as keep UCSB Connect Mail’s copy in the Inbox (recommended) or archive UCSB Connect Mail’s copy.
  12. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
