Mail Forwarding Options

This account is currently forwarding mail

Check this box if you wish to forward this account's incoming messages to the address or addresses specified in the Forwarding addresses option below. MDaemon users with web access to WorldClient or WebAdmin can use the options provided to set the forwarding options for themselves rather than requiring an administrator to do so.

Forwarding addresses (separate each address with a comma)

Use this field to designate any email addresses to which you wish to forward copies of this account's incoming messages as they arrive. A copy of each new message arriving at the server will be automatically generated and forwarded to the addresses specified in this field, provided the This account is currently forwarding mail option above is checked. When forwarding to multiple addresses, separate each one with a comma.

Retain a local copy of forwarded mail

By default, a copy of each forwarded message is delivered normally to the local user's mailbox. If you uncheck this box then no local copy will be retained.

Advanced Forwarding Options

Forward the message to this domain

If you wish to route the forwarded messages through a particular domain's MX servers, then specify that domain here. If you wish to route the messages to a specific host, then enclose the value in brackets (e.g. []).

Use this address in SMTP envelope

If an address is specified here, it will be used in the "MAIL From" statement sent during the SMTP session with the accepting host, instead of using the actual sender of the message. If you require an empty SMTP "MAIL From" statement (i.e. "MAIL FROM <>") then enter "[trash]" into this option.

Use this TCP port

MDaemon will send the forwarded messages using the TCP port specified here. The default SMTP port is 25.
