I would like to to set up an alternate e-mail address on Outlook Express but wish to retain the original e-mail address.

Example: Mr [email protected] is the primary address but wish to forward this to Mr [email protected].

Any clues?

Are you trying to receive a mail and then automatically forward it to another e-mail address? e.g. copy all e-mails received by you at work to your home e-mail address.

By e-mail: Basically, yes. My MD has an standard e-mail account at work, but now he is living in cornwall, we wish to 'bounce' it automatically to his BT address.

In Outlook Express from the Menu Bar select TOOLS>MESSAGE RULES>MAIL and a "NEW MAIL RULE" dialog box appears. In box 1 (Select conditions) tick the box that says "Where the to line contains people". In box 2 (Select Actions) tick "Forward it to people".
In box 3 (Rule description) click on the blue underlined words "contains people" and type in the first part of your bosses e-mail address - basically everything before @. Then click on the "people" in the second line and type in the forwarding e-mail address. Type a name for the rule in box 4 (Boss Forwarding?)

Just remember that his computer and Outlook Express e-mail account must be active and regularly checking mail at the office for this to work.(TOOLS>OPTIONS>GENERAL TAB "Check for messages every .....)

Hope this helps
