Windows 7: Forwarding email

Forwarding email

Hi.

I will be leaving the house for a couple of days soon. While I am away, I will need to check my @btinternet.com emails. I usually use Microsoft Outlook 2007 on my home computer to do this. I will be taking a laptop when Igo away. I could use the BT Yahoo! web client, but if I open my emails in here I don't think it'll keep them stored on Outlook on my home computer.

How do I enable it to copy all emails to a different email address (a gmail one, for example), but then let it receive them all on my Outlook when I return.

Hopefully this is understandable.

Thanks.

As far as I'm aware (I have an @btinternet.com email too) accessing your webmail will not stop messages being downloaded to Outlook (assuming it is only setup on one PC) as long as you don't delete them from your webmail inbox.

However just to be safe I would make sure after you read a message you mark it as unread to guarantee it gets downloaded by Outlook on your return.
