Forward All Emails From Hotmail Account To Gmail or Other Email Account

However forwarding all the mails to a single mail account which you check on a regular basis would be a great idea. In my case without any doubt from all the email account I have, Gmail is the best out of all of them so if possible I normally forward all the mails from other account to the centralised gmail account which I use.
