Default Temporarily forward email without keeping a copy

I'm using ISPconfig and I can't seem to find a way to do something that was so simple in ISPconfig 2. Consider the scenario:

We have a mailbox called info@domain.com. The person checking that account has left the company. Now we want to forward email going to that account to someone else temporarily until we replace that person.

I can add an address in the "Send copy to" field but it also keeps a copy in the info@domain.com account. What if I want it to forward the message but NOT keep a copy?

I know I can setup a "Forward" but that requires that I delete this account first. What if I don't want to delete the account but just temporarily forward email without keeping a copy of the messages in the account? This was so slick and easy on ISPconfig 2. Was the functionality dropped in ISPconfig 3? Or am I missing something?
