An email Forward is an email acccount where
any delivered mail is automatically forwarded to
another email account. It is similar to an Alias,
however a forward is used to forward mail to an
account outside your domain.
Only administrators can add, modify and delete
Normally the administrative account is the
"postmaster" account. Since the postmaster is responsible
for managing all accounts in the domain, it cannot be
forwarded to another account, however you can have other
names that forward to the postmaster.
You can create forwards by clicking on the create
Add New Forward button in the Forwards screen, or by
using the fast link on the main menu.
To create the forward, enter the name of the remote account
that the mail is to be forwarded to. Then enter the
local name of the forward.
To save the new forward, click on the Add button on the
Create Forward screen.
To delete a forward, you click on the
delete button in the Forwards screen. If a forward
is deleted, only the forward name is deleted. The
remote POP3 account will stay on its server and
all email previously collected through the forward
will still be there.
To modify a forward, click on the modify
button in the Forwards screen.
The Modify Alias and Forwards screen allows you
add local POP3 accounts to the forward name
or more remote addresses to the forward name.
Note that you can use forwards to send mail to multiple
accounts. Effectivily, this can serve as a simple mailing
list. If you have multiple addressees for a forward, you
can also delete them from the Modify Alias and Forwards
Forwarding Address: email@example.com
Local Name: myforward
In this example you would already have the account
"firstname.lastname@example.org" setup on a domain other than the
one you are adding the forward to. Any mail sent to
the "myforward" address will be forwarded to the
other domain's "me" account.
