How to forward Rediffmail to Gmail?

Published on


You can forward all the Rediffmail emails to your Gmail inbox directly using a forwarding option. It is a lifesaver feature if you wish to manage all the emails from a Gmail account.

Gmail is much more intuitive than Rediffmail and offers some of the rich features which Rediffmail lacs. Also, Gmail is becoming more famous due to the use of Android, Chrome OS, and their universal login feature that attracted many users recently.

The setup of forwarding Rediffmail to Gmail is so simple yet effective in case you want to make a centralized system for all incoming emails. Here is how to set up this forward step by step.

Step 1

Open any browser and sign into your Rediffmail account and go to “Settings” > “General“.

Step 2

Click the “Auto Forward” or “Forward Your Emails” link. (There may be a link difference if you are on classic view or on standard view)

Step 3

Type your Gmail address in the text field box below the “Enter the email address to which you would like your Rediffmail forwarded” label (Double-check the email address, and avoid any typo mistakes).

Step 4

Select if you would like to retain a copy of the email on the Rediffmail servers or have the emails deleted after forwarding (better retain it if NOT looking for lifetime forwarding).

Step 5

Click on the “Start Forwarding My Emails” button.

Voilà! Your Rediffmail emails will now start showing up in your Gmail inbox. By any chance, if you want to undo this, just log in to your Rediffmail account and undo the same.

QUICK UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY, Rediffmail does not support email forwarding any more like it used to do before. The screen says, “You’ve not specified any email address to which you would like your emails forwarded”. We’ve received many emails that their screen does not show anything like a form to do this. They used to in the past, however, they disabled it since so many people were abusing it just to claim email ID space and no business wants their customers to fly away.

QUICK FIX: Although this is a tedious process, but we don’t find any reliable or don’t have any other fix. Only solution is to do the manual work! I’ll recommend manually sending an email to all your contacts to update your new email address so that ultimately they fix it from their end. In important places like bank and financial accounts, social accounts, and similar places you can manually change the email to a new one, and it doesn’t take little time.

    No use above options, auto-forward option is there but there we are not able to mention the other mail ID. Can you help me in this? Forward your emails to another email account: “You have not specified any email address to which you would like your emails forwarded”.

      Hello Sachin, as I mentioned at the end of article that auto-forwarding feature is disabled by them as of now, as it used to cost a lot to a company as many users flying away (once the majority of users fly away, it is impossible for them to make revenue). I’ll suggest you to manually contact to friends and tell them to update your new email address.
