When I try to forward my website email address to my personal gmail account, I get a pop-up saying that email address is already in use and that I will have to delete the other address in order to be able to use the address to forward it. But, that's crazy. The only other place where the address exists (as far as I know) is just below where I set it up originally. I do not understand what I need to do to be able to forward my website email. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can either have an email account or a forward in place but not both.

If you want to have the forward in place to your Gmail account then you actually have to delete the account and set up a forward instead.

There are several way to set up your email accounts at WA. You can do the forward as you suggest above or you can set Gmail to check your existing WA account via POP: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/21289

I like keeping my accounts separate, personally.
