In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to enable email forwarding (filtering) on your AwardSpace e-mail account.

What is Email Message Filtering?

E-mail message filtering is the automatic processing and organizing of e-mail messages when a given scenario occurs. For example, you can enable automatic forwarding, replying, rejection or deletion when someone sends you an e-mail message. The best thing about e-mail filtering is that you can enable more than one filter per e-mail account, which can end up in very satisfactory and interesting results.
