System Support Products Inc. (SSPI) has brought its Mail Forward application to Mac OS X. The e-mail forwarding tool for Microsoft Hotmail, Yahoo Web mail, and standard POP mail accounts now works with Apple’s Mail application.
Mail Forward works by accessing your Hotmail, Yahoo, or POP mailbox and forwarding each piece of mail through your SMTP mail server. Mail that’s successfully forwarded can be deleted from the mailbox, or can be left on the server. The original mailbox address is used as the return address for the forwarded mail; if the mail is undeliverable it will be returned to the original account.
A built-in scheduling feature lets mail be forwarded automatically at a specified time interval. Mail Forward also includes a basic scripting capability that lets you use AppleScript to automate the forwarding of e-mail.
A 30-day free trial is available for download from SSPI’s Web site. Registered users of Mail Forward for the traditional Mac operating system can migrate to the Mac OS X version for free. For others, the cost is US$15.
