    I have a mail forwarding of my own domain to a hotmail.

    dave@owndomain.com - dave@hotmail.com


    Everythings working; no problem.
    All mails are forwarded but also copied to the server where the mail stays in the folder
    mail / dave / new ?
    I know this is the normal procedure when working without forwarding; i think :confused:

    But I have set a forwarding, so i don't expect that the mails are staying on my server ?
    Is it normal that the mails are copied ?


    Thanks.

    Actually, if you simply want to forward but you do not want to keep a copy on the server, do not have a POP3 account - only have a forwarder.

    If you want to forward a copy and leave a copy on the server, then you do want to have both a POP3 account and a forwarder.

    What is unfortunate is that if you want your forwarded mail to be spam filtered before being forwarded, you must have a POP3 account in place as well - which means you must end up storing a local copy of forwarded mail on the server - spam filtering will not take place on forwarded email accounts if those accounts are not also POP3 accounts.

    Okay; that's the answer i was afraid of and i expected.
    Mmmm. I could leave the POP and forward everything to hotmail; but that damn spam !!

    Is there a way to delete the content inside a folder automatically via a crone job ?
    For example: items which our older then 5 days or so.
    Maybe that's a solution ?

    This is a trick too. No need to setup forward mail account.
