With the resurgence of newsletters, you might be struggling to keep your inbox clean and looking for a better place to read all that fresh new content. Upnext is here to help: you can read all your newsletters in the Upnext app! Follow the instructions below to get started!


In order to get your newsletters into Upnext, you need to do the following:

  1. Configure and verify a forwarding address
  2. Create a forwarding filter for the newsletter

We'll walk you through these step by step below! The entire process takes only 2 or 3 minutes ๐Ÿš€

Part 1: Configure and Verify Email Forwarding

1. Open Gmail and click settings


2. Click 'See all settings'


3. Go to 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP'


4. Click 'Add a forwarding address'


5. Enter your Upnext email address and click 'Next'

Your Upnext email is: your_username@inbox.upnext.in. If you don't know your username - or haven't claimed one yet - go to the account screen in your app (top right of the Library tab).


Confirm it has been entered correctly and click 'proceed' on the next popup. There will be one more popup to tell you a confirmation email has been sent to the address, click 'OK'.

6. Open your Upnext App and go to the 'Recently Saved' section on the home screen

Find the most recent link to confirm your forwarding address


There are two ways to confirm your forwarding address:

  1. Open the link and click the confirmation link (starts with https://mail-settings.google.com)
  2. Enter the confirmation code in the text box to verify the email address (the confirmation code is the 9 digits in parentheses in the title of the link).

After verifying the email address, ensure that the 'Disable forwarding' option is still selected. DO NOT select 'Forward a copy of incoming mail' to your Upnext email, as this will forward ALL of your email to this address which is probably not what you want to do!

๐ŸŽ‰ Congrats! Your Upnext email address is now a verified forwarding address!

Part 2: Create Forwarding Filter(s)

1. Open Gmail settings

See steps 1 and 2 above if you left the settings screen.

2. Go to 'Filters and Blocked Addresses'


3. Click 'Create a new filter'


4. Fill in the 'From' field

In the 'From' field, enter the domain of the email address from which the Newsletter is sent (e.g. stratechery.com for Ben Thompson's Stratechery Newsletters).


5. Click 'Create Filter'


6. Select 'Forward it to' and select your Upnext email address


7. (Optional) Select 'Skip the Inbox (Archive it)' if you would like emails to not appear in your inbox ๐Ÿงน


8. Click 'Create Filter'


๐Ÿ‘ All Done! New issues of the newsletter will now appear in your Upnext account. Both in your Library and in the dedicated 'Email Inbox' list.

Filters for your other newsletters

To create filters for other newsletters, repeat Part 2 above with the domains of the newsletters.
