How to forward email to Gmail, Yahoo or other e-mail service providers?

Email Account Forwarders:

Step 1: Login to your cPanel account.
Step 2: In the "Email" Section of your cPanel, click on "Forwarders" and then click on "Add Forwarders".
 

Step 3: On the "Add a New Forwarder" page you will see the "Address to forward:" field. If you want to forward your myemail@example.com to your custom e-mail address, enter "myemail" (without the quotes) in the "Address to forward" field, and should you have multiple domains, select the appropriate one from the domain drop-down list.

Step 4: From the "Destination" field select "Forward to email address" and enter your custom e-mail address on which you want to receive forwarded emails.

Final Step: Click on the "Add Forwarder" Button.
