    I have a Gmail account. In detail how do I forward a large group of specific emails – more than 20 and around 150. I'm guessing there has to be some program or something that allows this to be done. The instructions on Gmail might be limited. Any help or suggestions is much appreciated!

    You need to do two things: set up a forwarding address and then create a filter. Follow the following simple steps to set it up:

    Setting up a forwarding address:
    1) Go to gmail.com or mail.google.com
    2) Click the gear icon in the top right located below your profile picture
    3) Select 'Settings'
    4) Go to the 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP' tab at the top
    5) Click 'Add a forwarding address'
    6) Type in the email you want to forward the messages to
    7) Continue the steps to verify the email

    To create the filter:
    1) Go to gmail.com or mail.google.com
    2) Click the gear icon in the top right located below your profile picture
    3) Select 'Settings'
    4) Go to the 'Filters' tab at the top
    5) Click 'Create a new filter' on the bottom
    6) Fill out the form determining which emails you want to forward
    7) Click 'Create filter with this search'
    8) Check 'Forward It' and make sure it has the correct email
    9) Add any additional actions you want to happen with those emails such as placing it in a folder
    10) Click 'Create Filter'
    11) Send a message to yourself to test it

    There will be a banner at the top informing you that some of your mail is being forwarded. This will disappear soon.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
