The forward icon will forward the specific email in my email account that is there now.

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

Yes, I went to my email

ed08724 :

No. Click forwarding plans. Does it say you have forwarding accounts and can add one or what does it say

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

It says I would need to purchase a forwarding account

Click manage. Then click unused plans. Then click unused forwarding

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

Are you sure you want to remove the address [email protected]? Any messages still left on the mail server will be deleted.

Ok now click forwarding plans on the left click the add button to the right of that screen.

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

What is my identity at gmail. Do I enter [email protected]?

ed08724 :

Ee cannot see email address on here. They are blocked. Did you get a box that opened and said create forwarding address

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

Yes

ed08724 :

Put the first part of your email address in the first box, the NURTURED-BY-NATURE.COM in the second box and your full gmail address in the third box. I see nothing about an identity

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

That will do

ed08724 :

Then click ok. You are done. Send an email to your NURTURED-BY-NATURE.COM email address and then check to make sure it is received in gmail

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

Don't I need to set up a gmail identity and password ***** [email protected]

ed08724 :

Don't you already have a gmail email address

JACUSTOMER-ca5hdm5v- :

Not for [email protected] by nature.com. That is what I am asking help for now
