Forwarding mail option to not keep copy of message


Recommended Posts

I have a number of email accounts set up that I use as forwarding accounts. For example, mail sent to [email protected] automatically forwards to [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected].

With my previous hosting company, there was a box "Keep a copy of the forwarded messages" that I would uncheck since I don't actively use [email protected], I just use it as a way for people to email me, my wife and my kid via one email address address.

I contacted support but to the rep's knowledge there wasn't a way to set up the forwarding email accounts to not keep copies of the messages sent to them.

Was he correct? If so, I would really appreciate it if you would add this feature. Thanks!

As far I've seen, forwarders don't save messages. They simply pass it on. Is it a problem if you have some saved messages on another email. Couldn't you just log in a delete them if this was the case?

How have you set up the forwarders? By putting the addresses into Forwarders on cPanel?
