Auto-forwarding Email

Auto-forwarding is the automatic forwarding of emails that you have received in one inbox to a second inbox.

DataPacket does not offer or allow auto-forwarding of mail through accounts, as users do not have full control over the content or nature of the emails that are being forwarded and sent to remote servers. This puts our mail server reputation at risk because when remote email is forwarded DataPacket must assume full responsibility for these emails, many of which are often spam. For this reason, auto-forwarding is not supported.

Auto forward is an outdated practice that breaks modern authentication schemes. Mail fetch should be used in place of forwarding.
