Nowadays people have multiple or more than one email accounts where they receive messages. Sometimes when new email addresses are opened, it is irritating to go back and check messages that are still in the old accounts. For these problems there is a simple solution if you want to transfer Gmail account messages to another account. It is less time consuming to check one account where you get all your mail, than to check multiple accounts. There is a really cool option called the Google mail fetcher utility that is provided by Google. Moreover this new account need not be a Gmail email address.

• The first step in configuration of the script is to log on to the old Google account via Google Docs and copying the mail forwarding script to your Google drive. Keep in mind this Google drive should be associated with your old Gmail address.
• On the Google sheet, you will see a new Gmail menu. Click on the drop down of the Gmail menu and then authorize to the Google Script to get access to your Gmail account. The script is now authorized.
