How To Get Multiple Accounts eMails In One Inbox

Most of us do have multiple email accounts. It is necessary nowadays to keep your personal and private life separate. Every-time you register a new web account, the email address is required at registration. Most of the time you don't want to provide your private email address and so you create a temporary address for all those registrations.  You may provide the secondary email address to avoid spam to your main account.

But logging to multiple email accounts to check the inbox is a time-consuming and boring task. Though you can switch to different Gmail accounts or by using different browsers for every account, forwarding all the emails to one address is the best practice.
If your multiple accounts form the same email provider like Gmail, it is ok. But if you have accounts at different email service providers, you have to log in.

Here is a simple way to get all your email messages from multiple email accounts from the same host or different host to any single email inbox address.

Forward all emails to one account

Considering that you have two email addresses with Gmail and one with yahoo. You can do these steps for any number of account. Only you have to decide where you want all your emails.

➤ Suppose you have three email addresses

➤ You want to get all your messages to user1@gmail.com

➤ Forward all emails from user2@gmail.com and user3@yahoo.com to user1@gmail.com

Start with Gmail

  • Log in to your Gmail account from which you want to forward all the emails to another account.
  • Go to settings. Select the 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP' option.
  • Click on the button 'Add a forwarding address'.
  • Enter the email address to which you to forward all emails.
