What does Store and Forward mean?

Store and Forward allows you to keep a copy of all incoming e-mails to a specific mailbox, but then also forward a copy to another e-mail address (say, to a Gmail account).  This might be useful if you want to carbon copy a friend on all e-mails to a specific account, or you're travelling and only have an ISP account available.

Keep in mind that mail still collects in your main mailbox, so you could reach your mailbox limits quickly if you're not off-loading your e-mail to your mail program every so often.

If you'd prefer to just forward e-mail rather than keeping a copy of the e-mail locally, then just use E-Mail forwarding instead (the icon is located on the domain's main menu).
