Question ISPConfig3 | Email forward

I don't understand the behaviour of the Email forward feature in ISPConfig3.
After creating a mailbox for an emailaddress, i want to forward the incoming mail for that mailbox to an e-mailaddress elsewhere.
I also want is to keep a copy in the mailbox as well.

If i use the Email forward feature the message occurs: "There is already a mailbox with this email address".
So what i did, i removed the mailbox and tried the forward feature again. This time i was succesful. The forward was created.
But this is not what i want. I want to have a mailbox as well, so i can keep a copy of the incoming mail.

Is that possible in ISPConfig3 on the moment and if so, what do i need to do?

Default

What I do is create an Email Mailbox as normal and in the Custom Rules section add the following:

cc "!test@test.com"

This forwards all the incoming mail to test@test.com and also keeps a copy in the actual mailbox as well.

Please see the link below for more information:
