You set up an e-mail forwarder in cPanel that forwards messages from an e-mail account to Gmail. However, Gmail blocks the message or puts it in the spam folder.

If you experience problems with forwarded messages not reaching Gmail, there is an alternative solution. You can configure a Gmail account to access another e-mail account directly.
