How to Forward a GoDaddy Email Account

by Alan Sembera

    Using the email accounts provided with GoDaddy's Web and email hosting services allows you to use your own domain name in your email address. But if you already have another email address, it can be an inconvenience to check your GoDaddy account separately from your regular email. To avoid the extra hassle, set up your GoDaddy account to automatically forward copies of messages to your regular email address. You must be the owner of the GoDaddy account to make the changes.

    Step 1

    Log in to your main GoDaddy account and click "Email" under the Products tab. GoDaddy displays the email plans associated with your domain or Web hosting plans.

    Step 2

    Click the "Launch" button next to the plan that includes the email address you want to forward. GoDaddy opens the Email Control Center page. If a pop-up message appears, click "View All" to continue to the page.

    Step 3

    Click the "+" next to the plan name to display a list of your email addresses. Click the address you want to forward. GoDaddy opens the Edit Mailbox window.

    Step 4

    Select the "Advanced" tab, and then enter the forwarding address in the "Send CC To" field. If you want to forward the messages to more than one email address, separate the addresses with a comma.

    Step 5

    Click "OK" to save the settings. GoDaddy begins forwarding copies of all incoming messages.
