Are both accounts still open? Can you get into both using a web browser?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Both accounts are still open and I can get into either one.

Where did you setup the forward?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I followed the gmail prompts and checked the box that offers that service. so it imported all my emails up to yesterday, Apr 30th, but nothing is coming through today.

Are you sure you did not just transfer your mail? You need to go to Accounts and Import in Gmail settings to set it up. Did you just Import Mail & Contacts or did you Add POP3 email account? Please look here:

mike, i am very short for time. i did not add pop3...should I...didn't tell me to do that anywhere. will that solve the problem? please respond quickly...husband looking to go...
Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
Yes you have to add POP account not just Import. Import is a one time thing.
