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 of 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 and Chrome OS.
QUICK UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY, RediffMail does not support email forwarding anymore like it use 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 we don’t have any other fix. Do 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 bank accounts, social accounts, and similar places you can manually change the email to a new one, and it doesn’t take little time.
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.
Open any browser and sign into your Rediffmail account and go to “Settings” > “General“.
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)
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).
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).
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.
