Mail.app: Forward Important Emails to Different Email Address

Frequently I need to forward important emails from work to my home address as well. Here is how to set this up with the OS X mail application.

Here is how to setup forwarding emails from certain contacts to another email address. This is particularly useful for forwarding emails from certain people to SMS.

1. Open Mail
2. Click Preferences
3. Select the Rules tab
4. Click the Add Rule button

5. Name the rule whatever you wish
6. Create the rule with something similar to the following:

From Contains vip@email.com
Forward Message to newemail@email.com

This will forward all messages that you receive from vip@email.com to newemail@email.com. Using this you can forward important emails at work to home or SMS, for example.

See an example of this below…
