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. Cheers, Yitzik
