    Hi all,
    I kwow that "Fetchmail" can't select "Email Forward" because "Fetchmail" showes only "Email Mailbox"...but I have found a way to workaround this "limitation":

    step 1-create email, for example, named "[email protected]";
    step 2-create a fetchmail rule and set destination "[email protected]" from the list;
    step 3-delete mail "[email protected]";
    step 4-create an "Email Forward" named "[email protected]";

    Do you think it could be possible to implement this feature in the future?

    It has to fetch email to a mailbox, that's why it's limited to mailboxes.

    I showed that it is possible. The "email forward" points to an email or emails.. So where is the limitation?
