I use my phone rather than a PC.  How can I clean-up my address book in G-mail?  I am in my early 70s and am finding one by one my friends are dying.

It seems to me that some security has been added since I last added a
forwarding address, so the recipient has to approve.

As far as I know it has always been necessary to get approval from the
owner of the email address. It certainly was over ten years ago when I
started figuring out how forwarding worked...

It was always proper courtesy, but it wasn't something validated by the
system in the past. Not sure when it changed, but it's definitely the
requirement now.
Coordinate with your wife to get the message sent for validation and

I started using Gmail some 14 years ago, and ever since I can remember, it
was a requirement to get approval before you could auto-forward emails.
I am puzzled why you say "trying to add an address gets me nowhere." Is
that because it is forever waiting for the approval? Or do you not even

Sorry about the off-topic post, but every group I've found for the Chrome browser tells me that I don't have permission to post. So:

Sorry to hear about your friends. I find the easiest way to clean up my contacts on my phone is to open them in the browser, check the desktop version box, and go to town. The mobile versions of most everything seem to be designed to be as difficult as possible to do anything other than one simple function. Like the way the Gmail app is designed to make it impossible to create or edit filters...
