How to automatically forward messages sent to Hotmail to other email accounts

Make sure you never miss a message

Like many web users, you've probably got more than one webmail account. However, it can certainly be a chore remembering to check all of these email accounts. Why not set up a forwarding filter than ensures incoming emails are forwarded to another address, ideally one you check regularly, so you never miss a message. We've already shown you how to implement this in Gmail, but it's slightly different in if you use Microsoft's Hotmail. Here's how.

Step one
Login to your Hotmail account and go straight to your inbox. From the options menu in the top right-hand corer, select More Options.

Step two
Select the Email forwarding option. Then check the box next to Forward your mail to another email account. Enter the email address you want the messages to be forwarded to in the box and you can also chose to leave copy of the message in your Hotmail inbox. Press Save.
