    Hello,

    I'd like to be able to set up a POP email account, and forward emails to a gmail account, but not have the emails saved on the server.

    To do this I've set up Account-level Filtering, which works great, but if I have two email addresses set up and someone sends an email to both accounts only one person receives the email!!

    I've tried setting up User-level Filtering, but the same thing happens.

    So if I have jill@ and jack@ email accounts and someone emails both Jill and Jack in the same email, only jill@ receives the email.

    Is there a way around this?

    You don't have to have a mailbox setup to create a forwarder.

    For example, you can create a forwarder for user@domain.com to forward to user@gmail.com where user@domain.com has no mailbox. This will deliver the message to user@gmail.com and then discard the message as there is no mailbox on your server to deliver to. No bounceback message will be sent to the sender as delivery will be considered successful.

    In the forwarders section, you can either seperate emails to deliver to by commas (,) or you can set up a rule per recipient.

    Thanks for the reply, but I need to set up the POP emails up so I can use the settings in a gmail alias.

    In that case, have you considered a rule to delete incoming mail? I believe rules are run after forwarders. But don't quote me on that. Can't hurt to test it!

    Hello,

    Could you let us know the exact account level filter that you configured?

    Thank you.
