Forwarding and Quota limit!

Hi,
I've a squirrel mail which is based on a Debian Linux and my Quota is 1.4Gb which is shared between my files and my E-mail. I make a ".forward" file to forward my E-mail to another mail sever (e.g Gmail).

-My first question is if my quota exceeded, what happened to my E-mails. Are they forwarded or not?

-My second question is how can I set in ".forward" file that keep a copy of forwarded E-mail?

Hi,

Your answer to second question --

On most Unix systems, to forward a copy of your incoming messages to another address, configure your ~/.forward file so it looks similar to the following:
\local_username, other_username@host.domain

Replace local_username with your username on the computer where the ~/.forward file is located. Replace other_username@host.domain with the email address to which you want to forward your mail.

Enjoy !!
