This machine does traditional unix email (it comes in the box). It’s best to consider it pointless.
And, for old time’s sake, there’s webmail.
Name the destination in your file
which really is spelled with a leading dot.
rm ~/.forward echo firstname.lastname@example.org > ~/.forward cat ~/.forward
This example is for Apple Mail 2.1
Account Type IMAP Email Address email@example.com Incoming Mail Server play.psych.mun.ca Outgoing Mail Server smtp.mun.ca (*)
(*) Outgoing email will require your user name and password, as issued by IT Services.
