Are you sure that that was on a rules screen? It sounds more like something that would be on a 'Users & Aliases' screen. Or maybe, if you have one of FM's "Family" plans, you've disabled one...

Interesting... The *84 idea does work, but d*.*2 does not. However *d.2 does.

Did you just experiment, or did you find a useful help page somewhere?

Ah, ok. Ironically I've used that forward-to-me-at-FM method to get at mails from another provider's less versatile webmail system, without ever thinking of doing it entirely within my FM account.
