Is there a way to forward email from one alias on a Yahoo/XTRA email account to a different address?

 

I have an old xtra.co.nz email address (as well as a couple of others) and many years ago I created a number of aliases for the XTRA account, so that my wife, my daughter and my company name all had unique email addresses sharing the account. Under Settings > Accounts I can see the primary account email address as well as the three aliases, and can set up a rule under the main account email address to forward emails to (say) my GMail address, but what I want to do is only forward emails sent to one of the aliases to a new address. Is this possible? I can't find a way to do this.

 

For extra information, most of the time I access this account through Outlook on my home PC. I know I can create a rule in Outlook to forward only the emails sent to one alias but this means I have to wait until the emails are downloaded to my home PC, which I might only get to do every few days. I would prefer to find a way to do it as soon as they are received on the Yahoo/XTRA mail server.

Are they Aliases, or separate mailboxes?

 

ie. if you used an external client (like Outlook) can you get the mail for just one of the addresses? If so, you should be able to login to the Yahoo webmail with that address and password and setup the forwarding for it from there.

 

I used to have about 4 addresses with ihug, and that is how it worked for them (4 different webmail accounts, 4 passwords) even though their webmail is pretty horrible compared to Xtra's Yahoo based one.

See if you can get them split into separate mail boxes.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I'm pretty sure they are aliases for one mailbox, e.g. people can send an email to my email address, or my wife's, daughter's, or the company's, but all the emails go into the same inbox.
