Set Forwarding to Email

The "Set Forwarding to Email" issue in iCloud can occur when someone gains unauthorized access to an iCloud account and sets up email forwarding to another email address without the owner's knowledge. This may result in losing control over the account, such as access to personal information and data. It is important to regularly monitor email forwarding settings and take steps to secure your iCloud email account to prevent this problem from happening.


  • Incorrect email address
  • The iCloud account or email server issues
  • A third-party app or email client that isn't compatible
  • Their email storage space has been exceeded

Solution 1: Check if your iCloud storage is full and upgrade if necessary

  1. Open the Settings on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod device.
  2. Then, you have to tap on your name and then iCloud.
  3. After that, select the Manage Storage option.
  4. You will see a list of apps using iCloud storage.
  5. To upgrade, you have to click on Buy More Storage.
  6. Next, choose a storage plan that suits your needs.
  7. Now, type in your Apple ID password to confirm the purchase.
  8. Your iCloud storage will be upgraded, and you can start using it immediately.

Solution 2: Make sure that the email address you want to forward to is valid and does not have any errors

  1. Firstly, open a web browser window and log in to your email account.
  2. Next, compose a new email to the email address you want to forward to.
  3. After that, verify that the email address is spelled correctly.
  4. In the next step, you need to send the email.
  5. Check the inbox of the email address to which you sent the email, and verify that the email was received without any error messages.
  6. If the email was not received, check if the recipient's mailbox is full or if the email was filtered as spam.
  7. If the email was received with an error message, correct the error in the recipient's email address and resend the test email.
  8. Once you have verified that the email address is valid and error-free, you can set up email forwarding in iCloud to that address.

Solution 3: Disable any third-party apps that may be conflicting with iCloud forwarding

  1. As your initial steps, open the Settings app on your device.
  2. After that, scroll down and then select Passwords & Accounts.
  3. Then, you have to tap on the account that you're having trouble with.
  4. Now, disable any third-party apps that are connected to that account.
  5. Try forwarding your iCloud email again to see if the problem has been fixed.

Solution 4: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection and try again later if there are connection issues

  1. Check your internet connection by opening a web page or other internet-dependent application.
  2. If your connection is slow or unreliable, try resetting your modem and Wi-Fi router.
  3. And wait for a few minutes to see if the connection issue resolves on its own.
  4. If the issue continues, try again later or contact your internet service provider for assistance.

  • Consolidating multiple accounts into one inbox for easier management
  • Ensuring you receive emails even if you’re using a different account or device
  • Sharing relevant emails with colleagues or team members
  • Archiving emails in a separate account for record-keeping purposes

To use an email forwarding service, you need to first sign up with a provider and create an account. Then, you must configure the settings to forward incoming emails to the desired destination email address. This involves specifying the forwarding email address and the criteria for which emails should be forwarded. Finally, you will need to test the service to ensure it is working correctly.
