    I've got cpanel set up to send every email that I get at my addresses using pop3 with thunderbird. I've got a gmail account and I really like how every email is both stored online and it's sent to you using pop3.

    Is there a way to enable this kind of feature in cpanel?

    Do you want both sent email and received email to be stored on server when they are sent from thunderbird ?

    If you mean that you want to leave on your server a copy of all email received and downloaded with Thunderbird, you must configure your account parameters on Thunderbird: Tools --> Account parameters --> Look on the left window for your account, and below its name select "Server parameters" --> Check "Leave messages on server" or similar.

    Also you may want to use IMAP protocol instead of POP for getting mail. In this case your mail will not be deleted on your server unless you delete it from Thunderbird or webmail.

    Keep in mind that on standard servers mail quotas are usually very small compared to the capacity that GMail is offering, and your mailbox could get out of space very quickly, and blocked, if you leave there a copy of all your email.

    Regards,
