Is there free e-mail that allows forwarding rules?

Asked by 6rant6 (13672points) April 4th, 2012

I’m looking for an email provider (free) that allows mail to be forwarded according to rules. For example, if the message contains the word, “Guatemala” then it gets forwarded to someone. If the subject line contains “horseradish” it gets forwarded to someone or someones else.

Gmail does not allow you to do this.

Know anyone who does?

You can do this with Gmail.

1) Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> “creating a filter”
2) enter criteria (to, from, words, etc)
3) create forwarding rule to the other address

You can have several.

Yahoo Mail. Hotmail. Probably whatever your ISP sets you up with.

In GMail, set up filters. They allow you to do exactly what you propose. I’ve been using them for years.

If you want an actual email client like Outlook that’s free, you can use Thunderbird (mozilla product) –
