Sending copy of the Email to another address from Lotus 6.5

Posted on 2006-06-03

I have a pocket PC which only supports OUTLOOK POP/IMAP unfortunately and I need to forward my office Emails to my pocket PC since it doesn't read the lotus emails from the server directly.
I have a personal POP account setup for my pocket PC to read the email through POP with GPRS.
But how do I send a copy of the Emails that I receive with Lotus to this account?  I still want to be able to access my Emails in the office, I do not want to ONLY forward to my pocket PC.
Can I set this on the server?  I do not want it to be a client rule where I must have my laptop connecting to the Lotus server.
How can I do that?

    Enable a Rule. In you mail, at the left, under Tools, there is Rules. Create one, and select "send copy to" as action.

    I tried this before, but it seems to be a client rule
    Doesn't work when I took my laptop offline

    It is a client rule, but it is executed by the server.      

    From the Help database:

    Question: Why won't my mail rule run?
    After you create a rule you must enable it before it can run. Open the Rules folder in the navigation pane, select your rule, and click "Enable Rule."

    it is already enabled, so u said it is client rule and runs on server, so should that solve my problems?
    so far it is not.

    How do you receive mails on the server? Are mails received on that server, or are they replicated in?

    The server must be enabled to forward mail using rules. See also the Configuration settings in the NAB, Router/SMTP, Restrictions and Controls, Delivery Controls.
    User rules mail forwarding:    Enabled
