Forwarding your email to another email address:

This facility allows you to forward a copy of all your incoming email to a third party

Why would I use this facility?

 

You will typically use this facility to send all your incoming mail to another email user while you are away. A very handy tool when you are out of reach for extended periods of time.

How does it work?

When email forwarding is activated on a specific email account it will forward a copy of all incoming messaged to a pre-defined second email address. The mail forwarding facility will remain active until it is deleted. You can use this in conjunction with the auto responder facility when unable to reply to incoming messages.

How?

Setup an autoresponder message telling your clients that you are away and who will be managing your email while you are unavailable. Setup a mail forwarder to send all incoming mail to the third party who will be dealing with your communication while away. We explain mail forwarding in detail below.  Get help with autoresponder setup here.
