Forwarding Email to a Group in Gmail via a Filter

Today Cathy Nelson, posted this question out that seemed like a reasonable request and something you should be able to do, so I tested it out.

Here's how you can do it.

Create a group in Google Groups

Next, add that email under forwarding email addresses in the settings on gmail (you will need to confirm that address)

Now you need to add the filter itself. Click on more and then "filter messages like these"

Insert the New Google Group Address and Voila, your emails will now be distributed to any groups that you want. This can be a powerful way to automatically share emails to folks that need to be "in the know" in your organization!
