    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?

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

    cc "[email protected]"

    This forwards all the incoming mail to [email protected] and also keeps a copy in the actual mailbox as well.

    Please see the link below for more information:
