How to Forward iCloud Emails to Another Email Account Automatically

Your iCloud Mail has two smart features: forward all emails to another account and forward specific emails to another address. Check this tutorial to explore both features in detail.

Your professional life requires you to use multiple email IDs. Apart from your official email, you may like to use iCloud Mail, which is an excellent choice. But checking different email IDs frequently can eat up your time. A better way is to get all those emails delivered on a single address. If you are using your iCloud Mail for serious communication (like bank statements, shopping bills, travel plans or personal business), you can set up iCloud email forwarding to another address.

By employing a simple method, you can automatically forward emails in iCloud. A single account can be a window of multiple email communications.

You have done it!

I have a suspicious mind; hence I always test such features. You can also run a test by sending an email to your iCloud Mail from another account. Alternatively, you can ask your friends or colleagues to shoot an email to your iCloud Mail and then check that email is delivered to your forwarding account.

How to Forward Specific iCloud Emails to Another Account

The method above will send all your iCloud Mails to another account, and over a period that another account will be cluttered with countless messages. Why don’t you set rules on your iCloud Mail? By this way, you can filter specific emails, and only a few selected iCloud emails will be forwarded to your another account.

You can ask iCloud to filter specific senders or emails with a particular word in the subject lines.

In this box, you need to fill up a condition: If a message is (from email ID, is addressed to, is Cc’d to, is addressed or Cc’d to, has subject containing, and has list-id containing), then (conditions).

For example, if you receive a message from your client, you can move it to your choice of folders.

Don’t forget to enter the forwarding email address.

Step #4. Click on Done button; again, click on the Done button to finish the process.

Enter the Email and Click on Done in iCloud Rules Settings

Later, you can remove this rule by clicking on the Rules tab. Next, click on information (i) icon and select the Delete button. A dialog box will ask your confirmation; click on Delete button again to get rid of that rule.
