Default How to automatically forward your Windows Live Hotmail

Hello,

Update! The current directions are in Post #6 - How to automatically forward your Windows Live Hotmail

---

The new version of Windows Live Hotmail lets you automatically forward your e-mail to an alternate e-mail address.

To configure your account to forward e-mail to another address:

  • Go to the top right of your inbox and select More Options from the Options menu

Pumpkins is correct. Hotmail is a little misleading in this respect you can only forward other live accounts.

Default Re: How to automatically forward your Windows Live Hotmail

When you set up the automatic forward option in Hotmail, there's no option to save a copy of the message on that account (though apparently there used to be a check-box for that, on a site I was browsing).

Is there any way to make an account both forward and save emails?

I ask because I have a few accounts and it's far easier to forward everything to one account, link them all together, then 'reply as' the appropriate person, but this has the unfortunate downside of sending the email 'on behalf of' the chosen account rather than 'from' ...

Hello,

Hotmail does not support automatic copy + forward.

The best option is to check your Hotmail account with pop3 from a mail program on your computer :

How do I configure my Hotmail or MSN email account to work with POP3?

Then you can create a filter that will automatically forward a copy of your incoming email to another email address.

Automatic email forwarding from Hotmail is supported now.

Go to the Gear and click More Mail Settings:
