Gmail's built-in email forwarder imposes several limitations. It only lets you forward messages to an email address that you have verified earlier. You cannot create a filter inside Gmail and auto-forward emails to addresses that are not owned by you.

You cannot forward old email threads in Gmail and it doesn't support bulk forwarding. You cannot select multiple messages inside Gmail and forward them all to another address in a single step. You'll have to forward them manually, one by one.

Email Forwarder for Gmail is a Google Sheets add-on that gets around all these limitation. Here you can create a forwarding rule, just like Gmail filters, except that you are not required to verify the forwarding address. You can forward to any valid email address. 

The Gmail add-on supports bulk email forwarding as well. You can apply a common Gmail label to all email messages that you wish to forward to another address and then create a rule, with the add-on, that will forward all these labeled message to any other email address.

And unlike Gmail that can only forward new and incoming email, the Gmail Forwarder add-on can auto-forward both past and future email messages. 

The premium edition of the Gmail Forwarder lets you create unlimited rules for auto-forwarding email messages, it runs faster (every 15 minutes) and you have a higher mail sending limit.  

Email Forwarder (Free Edition) - 1 Forwarding Rule, 20 emails per day, Runs once per hour
Email Forwarder (Premium) for Gmail Accounts - Unlimited Rules, 100 emails per day, Runs every 15 minutes
Email Forwarder (Premium) for G Suite - Unlimited Rules, 1500 emails (Google Suite for Work), Runs every 15 minutes

Google will automatically reset your daily quota around 1 PM PST.

If you are experiencing any problem or issues, go to the Add-on -> Email Forwarder menu and choose Restart. If that doesn't solve the issue, please send the Debug Logs from the same menu.

Hello Admin, I really like this app but forwarding emails are showing on Sent messages and i don't want that. If i forward my emails via Gmail forward service then its not showing on sent mails. Please let me know if there is any way to delete sent mail once mails are forwarded. And if possible please reply me at Thank you.

Does as promised. i wish there was an in between options. More than 1 rule, but I don't need unlimited rules and hundreds of forwards a day. Also, I am unsure how the rule works for old emails. It did 20 the first day. Will it keep doing the older ones? Will it not repeat the ones it already did? I guess I will find out. Thank you though!

In the free version, is it "one rule. 20 emails per day." or "one rule only. 20 emails per day." Do you get to add a new rule every day or is it just one rule only? Thx.

Seems like it will be very useful once I get it working right. Having difficulties though. It is marking many more of the emails that match the rule as forwarded than are actually ending up in the log or in my sent items.

I tested this for sent mails, and realized this create a loop in my receiving email account whereby same emails have been forwarded again and again because of configure the sender email address under the label. It will be perfect if this can be resolved. Another clarification is for google at work user will have up to 1,500 mails being forwarded? or still need to buy this add ons?

Excellent little script that works as advertised. Author also responded promptly and helpfully to my query. The one flaw is that it separates messages in a thread, so for a thread with let's say 10 messages, you'd receiving 10 individual emails at the other end. Apparently there is no way to preserve the conversation as a single email thread.

It says free in the extension store. Is it not free once you try and use it?

Loaded and worked exactly as stated. Easy to configure. I have not upgraded yet; might be worth it. My main motivation was certain emails that were old and I wanted to forward, which gmail cannot do in bulk or via a filter.
