For some people, forwarding emails is a troublesome thing that they do daily. For Gmail (and many other email clients) users, you know that it only allows you to forward one email at a time. So if you have a bunch of emails to be forwarded, you need to open each of those and click the Forward option to have them forwarded. Wish there was a way to quickly forward multiple emails at once? Luckily, there is.

Multi Forward for Gmail is an extension for the Chrome browser that lets you quickly forward multiple emails in your Gmail account.

Here’s how to do that.

1. Head over to the Multi Forward for Gmail extension page in the Chrome Store and click on “Add to Chrome” to add the extension to your browser.

5. At this point, the extension will ask you to “Sign in” to authorize it. You only need to do this the one time. Click “Sign-in”, then sign into your Gmail account to authorize the app.

  1. It doesn’t work in 2019 😰

  2. I got a message saying that the app wasn’t verified by Chrome and I should proceed if I know and trust the developer.

  3. It said it failed. I retried with the same result. I deleted it and found a much better one “Multi Email Forward for Gmail” that works and has lots of great options.
