Steps to Forward Incoming mail in gmail From old Account To New Account

Firstly sign in to your old Gmail account that you don’t want to continue using and forward its emails to new one.

==> Alright, quickly head towards the settings section and click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

==> Now Add a forwarding address; this means you need to add the new Email ID that you created on Gmail or the one where you want to receive your emails henceforth.

==> It will now ask you for the permission whether you really wanna forward your email to the new account simply select proceed.

==> Now Gmail will email you for confirmation whether you want to receive emails click on the link to confirm.

==> It will again ask you to confirm, hit on confirm button and you are done.

Now again go to settings > Forwarding and POP/ IMAP, in forwarding you need to select forward a copy of incoming mails to new account (email address) and you can choose to keep copy of email in old one as well or you can delete them also.

You will see a pink bar on top which mentions your emails are now forwarded to new email account. That bar will disappear after 7 days.

That’s it! You can now try sending a test email from another email to your old one and it will be sent to new account.
