I have set up my email forwarding to go from my shopify domain (www.ballwrk.com) email: firstname.lastname@example.org to my gmail account. I feel like when I set the store up last year the email forwarding initially worked. However now I can't even get test emails to show up in my gmail inbox that I sent via my shopify email. Has forwarding stopped working for gmail? What is the best solution?

This is an accepted solution.
Sending an e-mail from the same account that it's set up to forward to will not work, send the test e-mail from a different e-mail address.
For example, I purchased the domain petersshop.com, I set up an e-mail forward for email@example.com to forward to my e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. I can not send a test e-mail from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org and expect to receive the e-mail back to the same account I sent from. However, if I sent a test from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org, it should arrive in my inbox at email@example.com.
If you are testing the email forwarding with a different email and you're not receiving the email then I'd recommend reaching out to our Support to troubleshoot this further.
