How to prevent forwarding MailReach emails to your clients' inboxes when using Gmail / Google Workspace


This article helps agencies avoid cluttering their clients' inboxes with warm up emails.
It's adapted if you use Gmail / Google Workspace.
It should take you 5 minutes max.

Step 1 : copy your warm up content code in the settings of your email account in MailReach

In your MailReach account, select your email account and go in its settings
Find "Your warm up content code" and copy the code

Step 2 : if not done already, set up your client email address as a Forwarding address in the Gmail account

Go in the Gmail account, then settings, then 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP'
Click on 'Add a forwarding address' : put here your client email address so the emails received in this mailbox will be redirected to your client's.
Follow the steps with your client and make sure the forwarding address has been set up and confirmed.

Step 3 : set up the Gmail filter that redirects the emails to your client without the warm up emails.

In the Gmail settings, go to 'Filters and Blocked Addresses'
Click on 'Create a new filter'
In the 'Doesn't have' field, paste your warm up content code

Click on 'Create filter'
Check 'Forward it to' and select the address of your client
Create filter. You're done.

Congrats 🎉 you've set up a filter in Gmail that says "Redirect all emails to my client except the ones that contains the code XYZ".
