Thanx, pal. IMAP is known to me, but cannot be applied in this case. I have a
mailbox on a free server. At home, I gather mail from it by a mail client. At
the office we have a firewall. It doesn't permit to use mail clients for free
server mailboxes. But it permits to use them for the addresses/boxes on our
main office server. I don't want to make my office address known widely, and I
may change the job one day. So I organized redirection of mail from my free
server to the office server with copies being left on the free server so that I
could read them at home too. Ya see the point?
But, in fact, it doesn't make me any trouble. It's the most convenient scheme I
have after three years of 100-msg everyday mail.
