Moving from Gmail

Gmail lets you automatically forward any email to your address to another email address. So when someone emails you at, it’ll be sent right on to This way you’ll never need to tell people to change your email address and never miss an email someone sends to your old Gmail address.

Over time people can transition into emailing you at your new address, but there’s no rush.

Here’s how to get that set up:

First, grab your laptop and log into on a browser. After you’re logged in, click your avatar to select Account Setup › Forwarding & Sending › Connect an address › and enter your Gmail address.

Next, Go to “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” in your Gmail account settings, and add your HEY email address.

Gmail will send a verification email to your HEY address. Click the link in the verification email to confirm you own the HEY address.

Then, head back over to Gmail’s forwarding settings, switch to the “Forward a copy of incoming mail to” option, then click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page.

You can also send emails in HEY using your Gmail address. To do so, click “Sign in to Google”.

Select the two checkboxes for what HEY can access and then “Continue”.

Done! Now any emails sent to your old Gmail address will come right into HEY as well. And you’ll be able to switch which email address you’re sending from by tapping on the “From” field when you write an email in HEY.
