I have 20 filters set up in gmail.com address 1, to forward to individual people. Now we have 26 members. So I create a secondary gmail.com address. Now, one of the filters in gmail.com address 1 forwards to gmail.com address 2, but the problem is that they just sit in the inbox of gmail.com address 2! It won't forward to the other 6 people/filters. Help! Our group is growing and I don't want to have to create a new email address every time 20 more people join. I know I am missing something simple.

  • Why are you trying to recreate a mailing list in your Gmail mailbox? Use something like Google Groups. – ale Dec 26 '18 at 14:39
  • I am not sure how to make that work for us. We have applications, invoices from vendors, etc come to our liaison@ (email 1) and it has to automatically be dispersed to all liaisons (26). we currently used the filter option. But can only use 20 filters. So I created a second account, but it won't forward the emails, they stay in the inbox. – Tina Rene Cooley Dec 26 '18 at 23:05
  • Why not delegate access from the liaison account to all of the individual people that need it? – LoganGoesPlaces Dec 28 '18 at 18:27
  • Back to ale's suggestion - Google Groups allows any email coming to the group to be sent to all of the members of the group. So you could put all 26 people in the group and then any time someone emails the group everyone gets it. – LoganGoesPlaces Dec 28 '18 at 18:29
