How to forward multiple emails at once in gmail

No comments :
For many people, forwarding the emails is one of the troublesome activities which they indulge in, on day to day basis. As many people assume that they can only send one email to one receiver (or more) at a time, it seems like one of the most time-consuming activities. Well, with a few tweaks in the settings of your Gmail account, or by using the Google Chrome plugins, you can easily forward a bunch of emails at a time.

Following are some of the ways in which you can do it:

I. Use Gmail Filters to Send Multiple Emails At Once

Although there are many other methods to do it, but you can easily enable your Gmail account to forward multiple emails in one go, without any third party extensions. Follow the below given steps and start forwarding multiple emails:

  1. Open your Gmail account and then, click “Settings”, located in the drop down menu on the top right end of your Gmail login.

  2. Click “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” option and then click the tab “Add a Forwarding Address”.

  3. After this enter the email address to which you want your emails to be forwarded. Once you enter the address, a verification code will be sent to that email address.

  4. As soon as you enter the email address and press enter, you would be prompted to submit the verification code (sent to the email you entered in above step). Enter the verification code and click “Verify”.

  5. Now, enable the option “Forward a copy of incoming mail to..” and click on the hyperlink “Creating A Filter

  6. Here, you can create unique filters for forwarding the emails automatically to the given email address. You can create any type of filter, such as, forward the mails sent by a specific set of senders, or the mails which possess a specific phrase, the ones having attachments etc. and many more. Once you have entered the criteria, click on “Create Filter With This Search”.

  7. Next, enable the option “Forward it to”, and then select the email address before clicking “Create Filter

Once you do this, you will be notified by the Gmail through a forwarding notice for the next 7 days to ensure that you are aware of it.

II. Send Multiple Emails by Using the Chrome Extension

Google Chrome offers an inbuilt extension, available in the Chrome store that allows you to send multiple emails to multiple recipients with great ease. All you need to do is set up this extension and then send multiple emails from your Gmail account in a hassle free manner. 
  1. Open the Google Chrome Store by using the link https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps and search for the extension “Multi Forward for Gmail” and then click on the option “ADD TO CHROME” in order to add this extension to your Chrome browser.

  2. As the prompt appears to confirm the action, click “Add”. This will add the extension to your browser and its icon will start appearing in your Chrome menu. However, you would need to re-start the browser in order to use it. Simply close te browser and then re-open it.
  3. Now you would be able to see the “little arrow” in your menu, which is the icon of this extension

  4. Click on this icon, and enter your Gmail account before pressing “Sign In” button so that it can access your Gmail. 
  5. It would take you to Google Panel and will ask for authorization. Click “Continue”.
  6. On the next screen which follows, click “Accept”. This will set up the extension for use. It will also show you a welcome message with the steps that are needed to be followed to forward multiple emails at once.
  7. Now, when you login to your Gmail account, you can easily select the multiple emails which you want to forward at once. After selecting the emails, click on the “Multi Forward” icon.

  8. Then, you can enter the address of the intended recipient. You can also add more than one address. After this, simply click on “Multi-Forward” to send the multiple emails in one go.

Using the aforementioned methods, you can send multiple emails at once, and save the time & effort required for iteratively sending the emails.
