Things to note: Using Email Forwarding in

1. You can auto forward emails to only one other email ID. There is no option to forward emails to multiple email IDs. Work around for this can be: forward emails from Outlook ID to Gmail ID and then set auto forwarding from Gmail ID to another ID (say Yahoo ID).

2. Once you setup email forwarding, don’t forget to login into your account once in a while. You must login atleastĀ once in 365 days or one year to keep account active. Inactivity may result in deletion of your Hotmail email account.
