How to Forward Gmail Emails to another Account

If you have multiple Gmail accounts like I do, you would understand the inconvenience that I have to bear to check each mail account individually. While Gmail Multiple account login has helped the matters a bit, I still have to sign into all my email accounts one after the other.


But Hey wait! There is a better solution that lets you manage all your email accounts from one place. It involves forwarding all your Gmail mails to one email account. It works like RSS Aggregator that aggregates all your mail from different account into one account.
