I have created an alias (nickname) for my gmail (example@mydomain.com) which I would like to use on my web site. I am trying to figure out how to forward emails coming to this alias (info@mydomain.com) to several other email addresses (ie example1@mydomain.com, example2@mydomain.com). Can anyone help?

What do you mean by "gmail alias"? Is this another email account that you are able to send "From" using gmail? Do you pick up example@mydomain.com via POP3 into your gmail account, or is it simply forwarded? – w3dk Aug 13 '12 at 12:00

I haven't tested this, but you should be able to do this by setting up a filter.

First, verify each address you wish to forward to in the settings via Forwarding and POP/IMAP > Add a forwarding address.

Then, as per Google's instructions, you should be able to create a filter based on the search


Then select the option to forward email to your chosen address. You'll need to set up a filter for each address, since you can only forward to one address per filter.
