If you have a second Gmail email address for example, other than iCloud, you might be looking to redirect your iCloud emails to your Gmail address. It can become restrictive to juggle different addresses. What if you put all your messages together in a single mailbox? What if your primary address receives all of your iCloud emails, or at least all of those you deem useful? It is possible to forward your iCloud emails to your main address in a few simple steps.
For the manipulations that follow, there are no settings to make on your iOS device. All the manipulations will take place in a Safari, Google Chrome or Firefox internet browser.
Whether you want to forward some or all of your emails, you will need to enter the Mail settings in iCloud:
- Click on the gear wheel that represents the settings, bottom left;
- Select Preferences;

Step 1: Forward all of your iCloud emails
Let's start with something more global, forward all diCloud emails to another address:
- In General tab;
- Check Forward my emails:;
- Fill in your email address;
- Validate by clicking on Finish.
In this example, all the emails that the iCloud address will receive will be forwarded to [email protected] To avoid duplicates, you can check the Delete forwarded messages option. Once forwarded, messages will not remain on the iCloud address but only on Gmail.
You can pause this email transfer at any time. Just uncheck Forward my emails. The address will remain registered, you will only have to check the option again.
Step 2: Forward certain emails
Only certain messages interest you? Let's use the rules:
- In tab Rgles;
- Click on Add a rule;
- Set as you wish, with as many rules as possible;
At this time, you will be able to discover the possibilities available to you. You can decide how an e-mail will behave according to its sender, its subject or other recipients.
- Validate your rule by clicking on Finish.
- Click on Finish to validate and close everything.
Repeat for each rule you want to create.
Are you wrong?

- Click on the i of the rule concerned;
- Edit it as you want or delete it.
