3.  Click on “Add a forwarding address”.  This is where you will go through the steps to add each email to a “list” that you will eventually chose from to do the forwarding.  Unfortunately, you will have to repeat the process from begin to end for each email.

4.  At this point, confirmation email is sent to the email that you want to forward to.  The email contains the code that you will need to input in the “verify” box of the forwarding step (below).  Repeat steps 3-4 to add additional email addresses that you want to forward to.

5.  Then select the “Forward a copy of incoming mail to” and select the drop-down box to select the primary forwarding email address.  At this point, Google only allows you to forward to one email address.  So in order to work around that, Google let’s you use a filter.  So click on “creating a filter!” hyperlink (as seen below).
