That's it! The new email forwarder has been created.

Now, when people send emails to demo@abc123.com, those emails will automatically be redirected (or forwarded) to myname@yahoo.com.

6) Click the Go Back link.

Note: In addition to setting up email forwarders, you can also set up domain forwarders, so that all email sent to addresses within a domain would be forwarded to a specific email address.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to create new email forwarders or redirects.
