There's another neat Futurequest feature I didn't even know about! I deleted the forwarding alias and created a pop3 mailbox to which I then added the custom filter "forward email@example.com
" (minus the quotation marks and with the specifics changed to conform to my domain and email address).
I sent myself a test message and it worked almost
exactly as I had hoped. The message did indeed show up at the email address I had instructed it to forward to. The only thing that didn't behave as I expected was that the message does not seem to exist in the inbox of my pop3 box. Ideally I'd like the message to exist in both places, for ease of message quoting in my replies (although I can just do a cut and paste if I have to).
It looks to me like the message should exist in both place if I understand this correctly:
Forwarding Email to One Address - forwards a copy of the incoming email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. Standard delivery is not affected, so the email will still be delivered to the original recipient as well.
but if it does exist in the inbox folder of the pop3 mailbox I am not seeing it as mine reads "THIS FOLDER IS EMPTY". (I'm interpreting "original recipient" in the instructions to be the pop3 mailbox).
