How to set up email forwarding?
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.

In order to configure an email forwarder, please follow the below mentioned process:
- Log into the Hosting Control Panel of your AwardSpace website hosting account.
- Go to the Email Accounts section.
- Select the E-mail Accounts tab.
- Click on the email account you wish to add an email forwarder for. (Do not have an e-mail account yet? You can easily set up one by following the steps in our Creating an Email Account tutorial.)

A new window will appear where you need to enter the following information:

- Action – Set the filter action to Forward message to and then specify your external email address.
- Continue after this filter? – If you would like your forwarded messages to be stored in your Inbox, select Yes, otherwise select No.
To finish the setup, click Add Filter.
