Forward Rediff inbox to Gmail
I have a five-step approach to accomplish this with your Gmail account.
1. Login to the Rediffmail account you want to forward to Gmail-inbox and tap on “my settings“
2. Click on “forward” or “forward your emails” links. The link title in your account depends on your view. One is for a classic view and the other is for standard view.
3. Go to the label option “Enter the email address to which you would like your Rediffmail forwarded” and type your Gmail address in full.
4. Tick the option to delete “Rediffmail” in your account server if you don’t want to keep a copy after forwarded else leave it.
5. Click on “Start Forwarding My Emails” tab. Once that is done all incoming emails to your Rediffmail will be forwarded to your Gmail.
