Notes

  • If you have a Mailbox and a Email Forward of the same name then a copy of the email will be saved on your email account as well. This means that your mailbox can fill up and eventually stop forwarding emails. To avoid this delete or download emails from your account, or if you do not want a copy saved, delete the mailbox.
  • If you send an email from Gmail to an address that forwards back to the same Gmail account then Gmail will not receive the forwarded email.
