- Plesk Obsidian for Linux
Is it possible to create a mail forwarding without leaving a copy of all messages in the original mailbox?
Is it possible to create a forwarding rule for a non-existing email address?
For Plesk Obsidian 18.0.37 and higher.
- Log into Plesk
- Go to Plesk > Domains > example.com > Mail > email@example.com open the Forwarding tab and select the checkbox Do not deliver copies of forwarded emails to the Plesk mailbox (disabled by default)
As a workaround this functionality can be achieved by configuring filter rules in webmail:
Go to Plesk > Domains > example.com > Email Addresses > firstname.lastname@example.org > open webmail icon.
Or just login to webmail directly by accessing
webmail.example.comin your web browser:
Settings > Filters > New Filter > name filter > All Messages > Discard Message > Save.
Mail > Filters > New Rule > name filter > All of the following > To / Contains / example.com > Delete Message completely > Save.
Note: If mailbox on the server will not be used at all, it is possible to disable it in Domains > example.com > Mail Accounts > email@example.com > Mailbox - uncheck.
