Once done with the setup, click on the ‘Create Filter’ button.
Selecting the Filter Actions
In the final step, you need to select the filter actions. To forward the emails that match the criteria you have set, check the option ‘Forward it to’ and choose the forwarding email address in the drop-down list.
If you haven’t set up email forwarding, you need to click on the ‘Add forwarding address’ and enter the email address where you want to receive the emails. Then, to enable email forwarding, follow our guide Forward Emails from One Gmail Account to Another.
