I've had my website for years, finally adding a company email but it doesn't seem to be working? Test messages aren't being received here, or in my gmail where I'm trying to forward.

Your domain still had old email records on the DNS. I have updated them. It should be working shortly. Once you see the mail working then we can look at the forward if needed. Forwarding can be a problem in that sometimes mail servers, including Google, will block forwarded email as it looks like spam. There are alternatives, but let's get the mail working for you first, then we can deal with checking email.

Thank you! The email is working now, but not forwarding. How can I forward to my gmail?

Instead of forwarding, set up your gmail to check your Homestead mail. Messages are forwarded, but are likely getting blocked as spam.
