3. Route or forward your "new lead" email alerts from Apartments.com to that lead routing email address, and the new leads will be created in Follow Up Boss automatically.

To add an auto-forwarding rule in Google:

1. Login to your Google Mail account.

2. Go to the Settings page in Google Mail. 

3. Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

4. Click "Add a forwarding address."file-4YG8SQAiuO.png

6. Click Next.

7. Google will ask you to verify the forwarding email address. When it sends the verification message to your Follow Up Boss lead routing email address, Follow Up Boss will automatically forward the notification to you. You can find the confirmation link in the forwarded message, and you'll want to follow Google's steps in that message to confirm your forwarding email.

8. In your Google Mail inbox, open a recent "new lead" email notification from Apartments.com.

9. Click the three dots in the upper-right corner of the message, and choose "Filter messages like this."
