* Collecting your Hit Director email with Gmail.com


If you have email forwarders that you use to forward to multiple people – for example, if you want all mail sent to help@yourdomainname.com to be sent to all of the members of your support staff – you can do that through your gmail.com account by following the instructions below.

Note: The following instructions are subject to change anytime gmail.com wants to change its layout or functionality. If you notice a discrepancy between our instructions and gmail.com, please let us know so we can change this file for other Hit Director users.


How to set up email forwarders with gmail.com

Step 1) Configure your Gmail to collect e-mail from Hit Director.

Go through the steps described in the helpfile:
Collecting your Hit Director email with gmail.com
...to set up the email address to be collected by your gmail.com account. You can do this either with a gmail.com account that you are already using, or you can set up a new gmail.com account specifically for redirecting your email.


Step 2) Set up Filters in your Gmail.com account to redirect email to your recipient list. To do it, just follow these simple steps:


Click settings on the upper right of the gmail.com page



Click the Filters tab and then click the “Create a new filter” link.



Put the email address that you are trying to forward in the “To:” field. For example, if the email account you have set up at Hit Director is help@happydomain.com, enter that in the "To:" field and click the “Next Step” button



On the next page check the box next to “Forward it to:” and put one of the email addresses that you want this mail forwarded to in the text box.



Click the “Create Filter” button.

Repeat the process of creating new filters for each of the email addresses that you want to forward your emails to.
