How can I create an email that forwards mails to several recipients?

For instance, I would like to create an email named: organizers_event@gmail.com, and this email forwards mails to: xxx@gmail.com and yyy@gmail.com. Can I call it a mail-list?

One way to achieve this is by creating a new email and then forward received emails. Is there another way to do it?

EDIT

(following the comment)

Sorry @marikamitsos if I wasn't clear. Me with my friends want to create an "email address" that when someone send a mail to it, all of us receive the sent mail.

As stated in the official Google help page

Forward to more than one account
You can only automatically forward all your messages to one account.

Work-around

You can create a similar condition though using filters.

Google Mail (GMail), can filter forward to ONLY one email at a time.
So we will use a couple of repeatable steps.

(You have already created your account e.g. forall@gmail.com)

Step 1.
Go to Forwarding and POP/IMAP--> Add a forwarding address.
Follow and complete ALL stages for each individual email address you want to forward to.
(like friend01@somemail.com, friend02@gmail.com, specialfriend@business.info etc.)

Step 2.
Go to Filters and blocked addresses.
At the bottom of the page find and click on Create a new filter

Step 3.
On the pop up ONLY complete the To field with the current account's address (forall@gmail.com).
Click Continue and check the box for Forward it to.
Select one email (friend01@somemail.com) from the dropdown.
(You may also want to add a label as well at this point)
Click Create Filter.

Repeat steps Step 2 and Step 3 for each email address ( friend02@gmail.com, specialfriend@business.info etc.).

Step 4.
Test that all is working correctly by sending an email to forall@gmail.com from a different account (othermail@abc.com)

Step 5.
All done. Enjoy :)

PRO NOTE
The above technique is great since spam emails that are usually sent by bots omitting the recipients email address are filtered out and not forwarded.


Original reply

I have to admit I am a bit confused by what you are trying to do. Still.

The notion itself of "forwarding" lies in the fact that you first receive an email that you then send on to a different destination.

What you probably mean is to send the email as CC (Carbon Copy) or BCC (Blind Carbon Copy).

In this case you can address the email To just one recipient (even to your own mailbox) and then add the rest as CC or BCC.
