Set up an email filter
One of the most common uses for filters is to forward emails to another recipient. This is particularly useful for forwarding emails to a mailing list or administrator. You can also use filters to file emails into different folders in your Gmail account. If you have a lot of emails coming in, that could mean a lot of time spent manually filing them. But a filter can do it all automatically. Let’s say you want to forward emails that contain specific keywords to another email address. You can do this by setting up a filter.
When you set up an email filter, you instruct your email client to forward certain types of incoming emails to another email address.

When you’re looking to forward future emails based on specific criteria, you’re looking at two different methods: forwards and filters. These are two different ways you can set up email forwarding.
