Do you have a primary email account like email@example.com
, that you created a forwarder of firstname.lastname@example.org
to also forward messages to that primary email account?
If so, you can simply leave email@example.com
as just a forwarder, and not a physical email account. Then it will only forward messages along to the primary account, and not store them separately.
If you instead are trying to forward copies of messages from firstname.lastname@example.org
, and then have them removed from the email@example.com
account. Again you could simply remove the firstname.lastname@example.org
account, and just create it as a forwarder to the secondary one.
If you still needed to keep the email@example.com
account for outgoing mail purposes, then instead of using an email forwarder you'd want to setup some email filtering
on the firstname.lastname@example.org
You could create a new filter called Forward & Delete
for instance. Then under the Rules
section add To equals email@example.com
, and under the Actions
section use Redirect to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Then click the +
sign to add another action and select Discard Message
. This will forward the message off to your secondary account then delete it from the original account it was sent to.
I hope one of those solutions answered your question. Please let us know if any of that works in your case.
