Not getting email

Forgive me for asking a stupid question as I am usually tech savvy. I am using the  free email forwarding account with my domain and set it all up - but when i email the address to test it, it never forwards through to my gmail. I dont have any email accounts set up otherwise with godaddy, just the forwarding email account. What have I done wrong? Thanks!

Can you list what your domain is so I confirm the MX record - not being able to receive mail is typically due to an issue with the MX record

I can see that you are setup to use the GoDaddy WorkSpace Email (this is free forwarding / basic email from GoDaddy) in the Asia Data Center...

 

So everything should be working just fine.... Are you saying that if you send from your gmail account to the forward you don't get it back in gmail?? - If so this maybe correct as gmail views things sent from yourself to yourself as the same email and only shows in sent - you'd have to send from another email address other than your gmail account
