Can a POP account and a forwarder share the exact same address?

If you are going to create a forwarded email address, do not create a pop account with the same name.

For example, if you are going to forward the email from me@mydomain.com to me@myisp.com, do not create a pop account for me@mydomain.com, just create the email forwarder. A pop mailbox does not have to exist for the mail to be forwarded.

If you create a pop account with the same name, and do not check the original pop account, this account gradually fill up with mail and over time may use up all of your available disk space. If you have any questions about this, please contact the helpdesk.
