The auto forwarder feature allows you to forward all email
which arrives in your various mailboxes to a local service
provider. This allows you to collect all email sent to your
organisation from the one location, even when the mail is
sent under a number of different email addresses. If you change
ISPs in the future, you simply change the auto forwarder to
your new ISP.
Each Creative Mode mailbox allows you to configure forwarding addresses. This feature allows you to create multiple email addresses
for the same organisational function, and to quickly change
or add email addresses as your staff and functions grow.
An auto responder will detect all incoming email it is linked
to and will generate an automatic email response to the sender.
Many companies set up auto responders to offer information
about their products and services when people click links
on their web sites. Another good example of the use of auto
responders is for individuals (e.g. if John Smith from Acme
goes on holidays, he can set an auto response to all incoming
email notifying the sender that he is on holidays and when
he expects to return).

connect to the internet you can collect your email using a
