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.

Suppose that Bob is working with an assistant on a project. For each email Bob receives about the project, he can use a rule to forward those messages to his assistant. Using message forwarding assures that Bob's assistant receives all of the project messages automatically.
