Automatically forward email

How can I automatically forward all my email from comcast.net (Xfinity Connect) to my gmail address?  Since comcast changed to Xfinity I cannot find the forwarding option.

Hello,

1. Login to your xfinity connect.

2, Click the preference tab

3, Click on the email on the left side

4. Click on auto forwarding option

From there follow the ine instruction and click save and your done.

Re: Automatically forward email

Where is the auto forwarding option?  Is this all reliable?  Will all emails come into gmail with the original sender's name or with sender as my comcast account?

Re: Automatically forward email

Will my Xfinity mailbox keep a copy of all my emails if they are automatically forwarded to gmail?

If you want to leave a copy on the Comcast mail server you can.  At one point in the set up process you can tick a box to "Keep a Local Copy".  Follow the procedure reasd posted and you'll see it.

Re: Automatically forward email

There is no email tab on the left side, not is there a forwarding button anywhere that I can find. I can't find antything on the forum that's recent.

Re: Automatically forward email

You do this from My Account, not Webmail.  There is an email settings option.  You click the Users & Preferences tab on the top then you will see about 1/4 from the top next to "Basic Settings" a tab that says "Email Settings" Email Forwarding is there.

Don't use Google Chrome, Email Settings does not show up. Firefox is confirmed working as of 3/3/2014.

Re: Automatically forward email

Is there a way to do the "reverse" forwarding discussed here? I would love to forward my little-used gmail account to my comcast.net account (I use Outlook)

Yes, it's pretty easy. On the right hand side of your gmail account, there is a "gear" icon. Click on that and a box will drop down with various choices. Click on "settings" and go across the headings at the top until you find Forward and POP IMAP. Click on that and enter your email address after "Forward a copy of incoming mail to" .
