Can someone please help me with teh following ?

I use Lotus Notes 6.5 and have Admin access. One of our associates works only 2 days a week and I will like to
set up an agent or something else that will send a copy of every emails he receives on Lotus Notes to his private
Hotmail/Yahoo account while keeping a copy on Lotus Notes.

Thanks

Hi Bianchi,

I'm sure it can be done with an agent.. I don't have the expertise; maybe someone else here can help you if you need to do it that way.

Why is the Mailin Database solution not a fit for you requirement?  Do you need it explained further or assistance setting up?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No agent required. Just set up a mail rule in the mail database.

I agree with sjef bosman on the rule setup..

Just want to add one note. We currently allow some people to do this but have a horrible problem with the users trying to use their ISP accounts to filter spam that gets forwarded over by the rules. They don't realize when one a spam message is forwarded and you use AOL or something to mark it as spam you are marking your company's server/IP address instead of the original spammer. We are currently being blacklisted by some ISPs for this and have had to lock down the forwarding of e-mails

Just an FYI I thought I would share to help out.

brrwiggins.. nice comment, and definately something to think about.   If I can avoid forwarding to private email, I do, also.

Interesting thought indeed. I'd hope the ISP would send a mail to admin(at)yourcompany.com when the server is marked as spammer for the first time. I spose they couldn't care less...

Some ISPs have a service that will send you a copy of messages that was sent from your IP address and were marked as spam by the end user. However they remove a lot of the header information (including recipeint info) for security purposes. So if you have several people forwarding their e-mails using rules the notification rarely helps.
