I'm currently having IMAP-based email (over which I have no control):
forwarded to an external address using an entry in the .forward file:
I've setup the gmail account also to send from this .edu email account, but for reference I bcc email@example.com in the email I send from gmail.
Just out of curiousity, is there a way to define a rule with .forward (or something similar) such as:
"if the incoming email is from firstname.lastname@example.org, don't forward it to email@example.com"?
Obviously this isn't something that's handled at the mail client level - it's too late by then. I also concede I could just get gmail to handle this with the above rule (if the email I'm sending is from firstname.lastname@example.org, trash it), but this loses me flexibility if I want to email something out to my gmail account.
I hope that isn't too compilcated - I essentially want to have my cake and eat it. If someone can think of a better implementation, please do suggest. I kind of like the ability to have access to both email systems, so ditching one isn't really an option.
Thanks in advance for your help!
