Hi Inmotion...I was wondering...if I forward an email box to another, will the email be stored in both the forwarded box and the original email box?

Please respond to ******** as email accounts are not setup on Inmotion yet.

Thank you!

Thank you for your question highpower!

Yes! both email accounts will receive the email be cause its forwarded as a copy. When the fist email is reached, the email is stored in that inbox. Then the server sends a copy to the forwarded email address. If you do not want both copies you can do one of the following.

Using POP or IMAP for at a third party like Google
If you want you email delivered to another email address like Google, you can set up the SMTP connection at Google instead of using a forwarder.

Changing DNS for a third party like Google APPs
If you want email routed to another provider and you want to use the email for your domain, you can point the MX records to a 3rd party like Google.

Otherwise, the forwarding in cPanel will make a copy and maintain the emails in both email accounts.

Best regards,
James R
