Hello Webfaction-Cummunity!

I have various different Mailboxes for different departments in a company. For the main Account where all inquiries come together I would like to be able to create IMAP folders which will automatically forward their contents to specific email adresses. (the folder 'TECHNICS' to the Email technics@domain.com for example).

So here is my question: Is this possible and how can I do it?

Thank you very much in advance!

No, IMAP folders can't be made to forward anything. They're really just folders.

As an alternative, you could use something like the Python IMAP library to check the folders periodically and then forward the contents via the SMTP library.
