I have a Google Mail account which should forward all emails to my main email account.

It works in 99% of cases with my current filters:

Matches: is:spam Do this: Never send it to Spam
Matches: from:(*) Do this: Skip Inbox, Mark as read, Apply label "MyArchive", 
                           Forward to mymainemail@email.com

But if I send an email that is undeliverable for some reason, I get an email in my gmail inbox that does not get forwarded:

Undeliverable: Subject-of-undeliverable-email

And because I use my main email account not the forwarding gmail interface then I have no idea my email was not delivered.

Headers / Show Original

From: "System Administrator"
Sender: "System Administrator"
To: xxx
Subject: Undeliverable: yyy

Message-ID: <asdf$@Domain>
MIME-Version: 1.0

Content-Disposition: attachment;
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook 14.0
Thread-Index: erger
X-MS-TNEF-Correlator: egererg
X-OlkEid: asdfasd..........

How can I make all my emails to be forwarded, including the undeliverable notices?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

You have to verify that the notice the email was undeliverable is actually sent from the email account, if it is anything like my domain email, its not the same. –  Ramhound Aug 16 '12 at 10:54
