  •      Forward to a system account
  •      Pipe to a program

Please be aware, a copy of the forwarded email will remain on the sever as well. This means that eventually, the email box will reach capacity and stop forwarding messages. To avoid this issue, you can create a forwarder using a receiving email address at your domain that does not currently exist. By doing this, there will be no email box for a copy of the message to be saved in before the message is forwarded off of the server.
