Email forwarding

I have moved and stopped my Verizon service.  I have signed up for continuation of my Verizon service at new house.  However, there is a lapse of a couple of weeks before we can activate service at our new house.  So for that time we will have no Verizon service.  How do I get my email forwarded to my new gmail address.  For the time when my service ends and the new one begins I am not able to get access to my Verizon email.  I would like to make sure that any emails sent to my Verizon email address are automatically forward to my gmail address.  I could not figure out how to do that, I tried truswitch, but still can't figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated.  thanks
