Hi, your question is not really clear as to what you want to do - if it is to be able to read your emails away from the office or while on holiday anywhere in the World? The simplest answer is to have email address. You can then access your mail at any Internet Cafe or similar.

sorry it was a bit vague,i meant if i was on holiday etc that i could forward my email to a colleagues address

sorry read it again,what i mean by holiday is off work not lying on a beach somewhere exotic

Hmmm ... you mean if you are at home, or simply away from the office where you work - from there it gets a bit tricky? "forward my email to a colleagues address" this is what I don't understand - you can surely email him in the usual way, or, if you want to Forward a mail that you have received, then you click on Fwd and add his mail address to send it. If you are familiar with emailing, then Forwarding mail is a normal everyday process!

Or am I missing somehting here?

Hi, thanks for coming 'in', I am not familiar with Thunderbird - I thought that was just his/her Forum name.

thanks vog/techno,
i have managed to do the forwarding part via a filter,however this only works if i go into thunderbird and click get mail,it then gets the mail and forwards to another address,what im trying to config if poss? for thunderbird to get mail auto then forward the message to the another specified address?
i have checked the settings boxes ie check for email every x minutes and also checked the automatically download new messages but still i have to physically go into thunderbird and get mail for the forward filter/auto download to work.

I'm not familiar with Thunderbird but isn't there an option to check for new mail every X minutes?
