Rule creator objects to a valid forwarding email

My wife and are setting up rules to forward messages from certain addresses to each other. We are both using EMClient 9.0.1708. I can set up rules forwarding to her email (first.second@googlemail.com) OK, but for both of us, EMClient will not accept my email (first.second@gmail.com) as a forwarding address (though it is perfectly valid).

Note it will not accept “fred.bloggs@googlemail.com” either. That may not be a real address, but it is perfectly valid syntax.

This is because you are creating the Rule on the server, and it doesn’t support that kind of Rule without some additional server settings.

The easiest alternative is to simply create a Local Rule to do that.

Go to Menu > Rules and select Local Rules. Then click on New Rule and try again.
