There are plenty of reasons why someone will want to forward multiple emails from a Gmail account to other. First of all, you might want to make a backup of different Emails from your account to another account. Secondly, you might want to forward different Emails to the same Email address or different other persons. Natively, Google does not provide any option to forward multiple Emails from a Gmail account at the same time for security reasons.
However, there are other ways by which you can forward multiple Emails from Gmail account. You can either create a filter for Emails from a particular word or person to be forwarded to another account, but it is a complicated process and does not work as intended. However, on the other hand, there is a Chrome extension available in the Chrome store that can help you forward multiple Emails from Gmail account.
This method will only work with the Google Chrome on any computer; Windows or Mac OS X. Before you continue, make sure that this method does not work on iPhone, iPad or Android devices. All you need is to download a Chrome extension on your computer. This extension will require authorization for your Gmail account and apart from that it is pretty neat to forward multiple emails at the same time. Here’s how you can use “Multi Forward for Gmail” to forward multiple emails from Gmail on Chrome.
- Google Chrome for Windows, macOS or Chrome OS
