Do you have a primary email account like firstname.lastname@example.org
, that you created a forwarder of email@example.com
to also forward messages to that primary email account?
If so, you can simply leave firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
, and then have them removed from the firstname.lastname@example.org
account. Again you could simply remove the email@example.com
account, and just create it as a forwarder to the secondary one.
If you still needed to keep the firstname.lastname@example.org
account for outgoing mail purposes, then instead of using an email forwarder you'd want to setup some email filtering
on the email@example.com
You could create a new filter called Forward & Delete
for instance. Then under the Rules
section add To equals firstname.lastname@example.org
, and under the Actions
section use Redirect to email email@example.com
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.
