Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.

With three Zoho Mail accounts, five phones and several workstations, who is to stay ahead of it all?

Fortunately, Zoho Mail makes it easy to consolidate: you can forward all mail received at one Zoho Mail account to another, to a notification app for your phone, and to any old email address, of course.

That means all mail you receive at that account's address is automatically sent on to the receiving email address.

You can have Zoho Mail retain copies of messages that are forwarded (say, as a backup) or elect to delete them.

At the receiving account, treat the messages like other mail. You can set up a filter perhaps that labels mail forwarded from the Zoho Mail address (with that address in the To: or Cc; field) so you can spot it immediately, or have it moved to a special folder.
