Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Do you go to the google / gmail website to access email?

Or do you use an email program, such as Outlook, etc.?

Please try the following:

  1. Go to the Gmail.com website:
    http://www.gmail.com
  2. And sign in your gmail email address if prompted.
  3. Open the email message you want to forward.
  4. Near the top right of that email message, click on the tiny down arrow icon, then click on the option Forward.
    - (Note: The tiny down arrow icon is also located next to the curved left arrow icon near the top right of the message. (The curved left arrow icon is the Reply option.))
    - Another way to forward: After opening the email message you want, then scroll down near the bottom, then click on the option Forward.
  5. Then enter your son's contact (or enter any contact you want to forward to.)
  6. Then click on Send near the bottom.

- If there is still any issue, please let me know the make / model of your computer.
