Email forwarding
the company has agreed to allow a departing employee to forward their incoming email to an external address. The company intends to start a new hosting site, and redirect mail sent to the old hosting site to the new hosting site. Will the 'redirect' interfere with the forwarding command? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Possibly, it all depends on how things are setup.

If the old hosting company will be redirecting the emails through there email server to the new hosting company that the forward rule should stay in place.

However if you are simply updating your DNS to point your MX record to the new hosting companies mail servers then this forward rule will no longer work as it is setup on the old server and not the new server so it would need to be setup again.
