How to forward email message to another mailbox

By using a rule, any received email message that match conditions specified in the rule ca be forwarded to another email account. For example, all email messages from a sender or with a subject that specify can be forwarded.

Automatically redirect email messages with Postfix, Sendmail and Zimbra.

  • Click button Add Rule in the Administrator Panel.
  • On the Conditions tab, click button Add and choose Message Recipient.
  • In the email address, enter bob@company.com
  • Click button OK.
  • On the Actions tab, click button Add and choose Forward Message.
  • Enter destination email address bob.assistant@company.com
  • Define email Subject line, FWD: ${message:subject}
  • Click button OK.
  • Close rule wizard and save changes.
