As the title of the question states, I would like to forward my iCloud email to my Gmail address. Specifically, I have an iCloud email that I made with my Apple ID as well as a Gmail address I made back in 2012 or something. Most of my emails go to my Gmail address, but I would still like to use my iCloud address for a few specific things. I know the easy answer is "go into your mail app and set up a filter to forward everything to your Gmail address," but the only Apple device I have is an iPhone and (as far as I can tell) you can't make filters from there.

Given this information, how can I forward all my iCloud email to my Gmail address?

In iCloud Mail, click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar (as in the picture), then choose Preferences.

In the General pane, select Forward my email to, then type the forwarding address in the text field.

If you don’t want to store a copy of each forwarded message in iCloud, you can select: Delete messages after forwarding.

Keep in mind that storing copies of forwarded messages decreases your available iCloud storage space.

At the end clink: Done.
