Email forwarding issue

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm attempting to use facebooks sms alerts as a free email alert. I have currently set up my gmail to forward to my fb email. However, as each email is from a different sender and not on my friends list - the emails are moved to the other sub-folder and no sms notifications are sent.

Is there a way that I can allow all emails sent to facebook be moved to the normal folder by default?

Or is there a way I can forward the emails and alter the send address rather than keeping their original senders? Then once I move that email address to the normal folder. All other emails will be sent under the same address and work normally.

Cheers,
David

So you dont have the ability to get emails on your phone is what youre saying? Set the forward to yournumber@yourphoneprovider.com, example 859xxxxxx@messaging.sprintpcs.com is mine, itll come through as a text. No need to use FB.

Ok then. Lets focus on your problem. What mail client are you using (Outlook Express, Outlook, Thunderbird etc), and how do you have your rules setup?

How do you have it set up? Using just the 'To:' field?

Nope, there is the option to bypass any parameters, just forward all incoming mail
