Mail Forward for Macintosh

Forward your Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, or POP mail to any e-mail address!

Mail Forward allows you to forward mail from Hotmail, MSN, and Yahoo web mail accounts to any e-mail address. Standard POP e-mail accounts can also be forwarded.

Mail can be forwarded for up to 20 separate accounts. For each account, a forwarding address can be specified or a default destination can be used.

Mail Forward works by accessing your web mail or POP mailbox and forwarding each piece of mail through your SMTP mail server. Mail that is successfully forwarded can be deleted from the mailbox, or can be left on the server. The forwarding mailbox address is used as the return address for the forwarded mail, so if the mail is undeliverable it will be returned to the forwarding account.

A built-in scheduling feature allows mail to be forwarded automatically at a specified time interval.

Mail Forward also includes a basic scripting capability that allows you to use AppleScript to automate the forwarding of e-mail.

Hotmail Account Note: Microsoft has eliminated free Outlook/Entourage access for all new Hotmail accounts, which is the method used by Mail Forward. If access to your account is restricted, you will see the following error message in Mail Forward:

"402 Access to Hotmail via Outlook and Outlook Express now requires a subscription. Please sign up at"

If your account is restricted you will need to upgrade to Hotmail Plus in order to use Mail Forward with that account.

System Requirements

Mail Forward requires an Apple Macintosh or compatible with a 68030 or greater processor (including all PowerPC processors), using Mac OS 7.6.1 or later.

A version of Mail Forward for Mac OS X is also available.
Forward mail from up to 20 Microsoft Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, or standard POP e-mail accounts to any e-mail address.
