It is possible to mimic this functionality by creating a rule for the account that forwards the email to the desired location(s).

So, the Helm developers could implement this functionality (but obviously have not done so yet).

Most mail servers I have dealt with do have the store and forward as a simple flag that can be set on the account, but the way I described is how hMailServer currently works.

If Helm wants to offer this functionality for hMailServer then they would need to add code to create the rule as I described. At the very least, they should give you an error telling you that Helm doesn't support that option with hMailServer when you try to use it.

I've added a feature request that it should be possible to do forward of email without using rules. You can vote for it..

Here's an example on how to do exactly that:

You must set up a rule criteria that matches the messages you want to forward.

Does anyone know if they can get this to work with Helm control panel and the check box store and forward option right there for helm users to use?
