ISPConfig Forward Email to Other Addresses
This article details how to use ISPConfig to forward email to another email address (or addresses) of your choice and also whether to keep a copy on the server.
Many people who use a web-based email like hotmail, gmail or yahoo prefer to use their provider’s interface to pick up and/or send email from their own domain. You can configure their POP3/IMAP collector to retrieve the email for you or alternatively ‘push’ or forward it to that address.
In ISPConfig, this is done using the custom rules under the mailbox settings; depending on which LDA / POP3 / IMAP daemon you are using, the syntax differs slightly – I have shown the syntax for two of the most popular. Dovecot uses sieve syntax and is shown in the images and Courier uses the maildrop syntax – please refer to the footnotes.
