Who is your provider? Is it Telus by any chance? If so you would have received several emails at some point notifying you that Telus email is partnering with Google and essentially your Telus email address becomes a Google email address, maybe other Canadian telecom providers did the same thing, but here is an article where you can read about this with respect to Telus:

Okay, I just find it annoying that I have to do this when I never contacted them to set this up in the first place.

Hi, Madison. Since you are getting messages forwarding from your ISP's email address, forwarded to, not from, your gmail address, you will need to call your ISP, and find out how to disable forwarding from that ISP's address. It should be similar to gmail's forwarding options, but since I don't have an email address at your ISP's domain, I would have no idea where to tell you to look in their settings options. You will need to log onto your ISP's website, and change it there.

Okay, does it take awhile for these settings to take effect? I've disabled forwarding and also removed the other address, but emails sent to that address are still being forwarded to this address (my gmail address). This is really starting to annoy me.

As far as I can tell she simply wants to turn off forwarding so unchecking the box to forward is all that is required, the email address can stay in there.

Hi, Madison. I don't understand. You said you wanted to remove an address.

If you don't have a new address that you want your email forwarded to, then just remove the old address, and don't forward.

 

This is a little confusing, that's why it would be better if I could talk with you. That way, I could answer questions in real time, instead of going back and forth, trying to figure out what you are asking.

How do I remove the old one? I don't have a new address; I want to get back to using the one that was forwarding messages to my gmail address (or as you called it the old address) because it's through my ISP and they don't filter nearly as much as gmail does.

The only thing you need to do is put the new forwarding address in, once you remove the old one. Then save your changes.

Do I need to do anything with the forwarding address, or as long as the disable forwarding checkbox is checked is everything good?

Hi, Madison. It's in the same dialog as your current forwarding address.

Here's how my dialog looks on gmail,

 

Forwarding:

Choices

Setting

Choices

Forwarding:

Disable forwarding radio button‚ÄĎ not checked‚ÄĎ

1 of 2

Forward a copy of incoming mail to radio button‚ÄĎ checked‚ÄĎ

2 of 2

 

you need to change it so that

Disable forwarding  radio button   not checked 

is changed to

Disable forwarding  radio button   checked 

 

by spacing on the

Disable forwarding  radio button   not checked 

option.

 

By the way, Madison, the reason my dialog looks this way is that I am using Basic html mode in gmail.

 

If you need help with this, I will send you my phone number in the United States. Because I know you are in Canada, another option is that, when you receive my private message with my phone number, you can reply back, and give me yours instead. I have free calling to Canada, and I won't be charged if I call you.

Hi, Madison. The option to remove an email address won't come up until you "Disable Forwarding, and save your changes. Once you do that, there will be an option to remove the old email address. Once you have removed the old email address, just re-enable forwarding by checking the, Forward a copy of incoming mail check box, and save your changes.

Subject: gmail question

 

Hi all,

I have gmail set up so that all messages sent to my other account get forwarded to my gmail address, but now I've added my other account to Outlook, how do I stop messages sent to my other address from being forwarded to my gmail address?

I set this on the gmail web interface, but I've looked through settings and all I can find is the option to add a forwarding address.

Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10 and I'm using Firefox as my browser to access the gmail web interface. Really hope someone can help me!! Thanks Madison
