    Hi,

    I have a client that wants to forward all of his e-mail addresses to his AOL address but does not want a copy of the messages left on the server to take up space. I know how to do this using Outlook but wasn't sure if it was possible to do with AOL. Does anyone know the answer to this?

    Thanks!

    Setup a cPanel email forwarder and remove the mail account on the server.

    NOTE -- this can be very dangerous. All spam that is forwarded to his account at aol will look like it will come from your server. If he marks it as spam or aol's spam filters catch it your server will get a ding against it. Get enough and you will have your mailserver blocked from aol.

    I agree with Eth00... and specifically disallow the worst offending services: aol, hotmail and msn. I've allowed others, with the understanding that if a forward eventually causes the server to get listed, it's outta there...
