How To Automatically Forward Emails Using Windows Mail Desktop Client

In the Windows Mail Desktop Client, forwarding an email is straightforward. However, if you frequently forward the same types of emails, why not automate the process? You can have specific emails, or perhaps all of them, forwarded automatically.

We’ll show you how to set up email forwarding in Outlook, whether you’re using the desktop version or the web version. You can save time later and move on to more important activities by taking a few minutes now.

How to Automatically Forward Emails Using Windows Mail Desktop Client

Using a PC to enable automatic forwarding is a pretty straightforward technique. Here’s how to go about doing it.

  1. “Windows Live Mail” should now be open.
  2. Then click “Message Rules” under the “Folders” tab.
  3. Select “New” under “Email Rules.”
  4. Mark “Forward It to People” in the “Select One or More Actions” window.
  5. Click “Underlined Words” then “Contacts” where it reads “To Edit This Condition.”
  6. Select your alternate email address and click “OK.”

What else do I need to know?

Messages that you reroute or forward will be copied and stored in your mailbox. If you add a delete action to a message, the message will be moved to your Deleted Items folder and count against your mailbox limit. If you reach your mailbox limit, you may be unable to send or receive new messages, and forwarding rules may be disabled until you delete enough messages to reduce your mailbox limit.

You can include many addresses to send to when creating a forward or redirect rule. Depending on your account’s settings, the number of addresses you can send to may be limited. Your rule will not operate if you add more addresses than are allowed. If you’re going to construct a rule with many addresses, make sure you test it first.
