Read on if you need detailed instructions.
Open Outlook.com Settings
The first and most important step is to create a new rule within Outlook on the Web. To access Outlook Settings, click the Settings ‘Wheel’ icon in the top right corner. Then, from the bottom of the panel which opens, click on View all Outlook settings.
Next, add a new rule by clicking Mail > Rules. Your new rule will be added from there.
Add a New Rule and Forward mails
So, creating a new rule that forces Outlook to send emails to your Gmail account is as simple as clicking on “Add New Rule.” Be sure to give the Rule a name, and under “Add Condition,” select “Apply to All Messages” under “All Messages.”
Under the “Add an Action” section, choose “Forward To” from the “Route” drop-down menu and enter the Gmail email address. Click the “Save” button. If you’re using Office 365 or Exchange Server 2016, you can only set Rules to forward emails to another account using Outlook on the Web.
Redirect messages to another account
If you would rather redirect your messages instead of forwarding them, the process is quite similar. Simply choose “Redirect To” from the “Add an action” section, and you’re all set.Just be sure to add the preferred Gmail address and hit the Save button to continue.
