How do I Set Up Email Forwarding?

This article shows you how to set up email forwarding for a mailbox, not how to forward single emails.

Email forwarding can be used when out of the office or when setting up a catch-all email address. This article shows you how to configure your email client, whether in webmail or the ACC, to forward all emails to another address.

Mailboxes and Forwarding

In the ACC, you are given the choice between using a Mailbox or Forwarding recipe.

Mailboxes

A mailbox recipe is used to send emails from one ACC mailbox to another. This is faster than forwarding since it is traveling within the ACC.

A mailbox recipe should not be used for email clients outside of the ACC.

Forwarding

Forwarding recipes are used to forward emails from an ACC mailbox to an email address outside of the ACC.

A forwarding recipes should not be used to forward mail between two ACC mailboxes. It is much more efficient to use the mailbox recipe to forward mail between two ACC mailboxes.
