Click on Create archive.
Forward Gmail to ProtonMail
Setting up email forwarding is a convenient option. Gmail forwarding doesn't use end-to-end encryption, but the mail will still be P2P encrypted, so you don't need to worry about your email being blocked.
To forward Gmail to ProtonMail,

do the following:
In Gmail, click the gear icon> Settings.
Navigate to the Forwarding and POP / IMAP tab.
Click Add a forwarding address at the top.
Enter your ProtonMail address and click Next.
Wait for the Gmail confirmation email to be sent to the ProtonMail inbox, then click on the confirmation link in that email to grant forwarding permission.
Refresh Gmail, navigate back to the Forwarding and POP / IMAP tab if necessary, then select Forward a copy of incoming mail at the top. Choose a ProtonMail address as well as the Keep Gmail’s option to copy in the Inbox.
Scroll down and click on Save Changes.
