Turn the feature of forwarding on and the letters you receive will be redirected to another email address as well

  • In the menu that you will get to see on the right, you need to go to Accounts > Forwarding. The first step in arranging the settings of Hotmail accounts is switching the feature of forwarding on, if you need it, of course. This feature allows you to simply forward the letters from your actual Hotmail account to another email account of yours.
  • In order to turn the feature on, you need to place a tick near “Start forwarding.” In the given field, enter the email address which will receive the letters. After all, place a tick near “Keep a copy of forwarded messages” if you want to receive those letters in your Hotmail account as well. Click on the “Save” button at the top.

You are able to connect your Hotmail account to other email addresses anytime

  • Go to Accounts > Connected Accounts. There, you can add an account to your Hotmail account and receive letters solely by using the Hotmail account. In order to do so, click on “Gmail” or “Other email accounts”. In the next window, enter the email address, the password of that email, and opt whether to place the letters into the existing folders or create new ones. Click on “OK.” After a couple of minutes, all of the letters will be imported to your Hotmail account.
