Where can I find this filter as noted in the following "Help" section???
I'd like to be able to forward incoming mail to another e-mail address.

8.2.5.4. E-Mail filter
E-Mail filters help you organize incoming E-Mail messages. For example, you can set up E-Mail filters to trigger the following actions when receiving an E-Mail:

The E-Mail is moved to a specific E-Mail folder.

The E-Mail is forwarded to another E-Mail address.

The E-Mail is marked as read.

Login to your Homestead account and click on Email. Below the login, click on Manage my email account. Click the pencil icon to the right of the email account you want to forward. Under advanced options you will see the forward.. It can take up to an hour to activate.

If you have specific examples of failed forwards, you can give us the sender address, your address, the forwarding address, date/time and subject and we can track it.

Forwarding is falling out of favor with mail admins and spam filters. It greatly increases the chance a message will be marked as spam. You might need to configure your device to check your email directly. Most email programs can check multiple emails now.

We are a small all volunteer non-profit. We NEED our emails to be reliably forwarded to the various people who handle them. Forwarding of info@culinaryhistoriansny.org has been FAILING to HolleyA@ix.netcom.com and, even though I changed it yesterday to holley.atkinson@gmail.com, it is still failing. We NEED to be able to rely on this. Please advise when there will be a fix, thanks.

You can fill out the information in the form, I linked below. We can look into it, but the problem might not be on our end. We will need to investigate.
