Anyone know of webmail that will filter and forward?
« on: June 19, 2008, 08:16:26 AM »
I have email delivered from a webform to a single email address.

There are fields in the form that will allow me to filter the messages by using rules and forward them on to the appropriate person.

Does anyone have any idea of a reliable web based mail system that can do this automatically without me doing it through my own computer?

It is easy enough to do this with a POP client such as Outlook but I don't want to have a computer running 24/7 just to filter emails.

I think GMX can do this, but haven't had the account long and haven't specifically tried filtering and forwarding.  However, both appear to be there in the settings.  GMX has only recently reappeared in the UK, but they're long-established elsewhere and said to be good.

Can't beat using Gmail to filter all the spam out of all your email accounts and then just forward the good stuff to your main account. This article may be of some use as well... http://www.z-oc.com/...accounts-with-gmail/

I haven't found it slow, but agree about the windows.  It's Java, I think, seems a bit overcomplicated, and doesn't work as well as it might with non-standard browsers like K-Meleon.  However, all you have to do is set up GMX once, then pick up your mail by POP3 or whatever.
