WHAT IS ERC AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

BACK


ERC is "email redirecting software". It's purpose is to redirect mail from one or more Pop3 accounts to another single Pop3 account. There are many different scenarios that you may want to use ERC. Consider the following:

Example 1. You spend most of your day at work in your office and you want mail from your personal mail account to be forwarded to your mail account at work. You can setup ERC on your home computer (or even your work computer) to pull down mail from your personal ISP, optionally remove/leave the mail on that server then redirect any messages to your work account. Therefore, you only have the requirement to check a single account for all your work and personal mail.

Example 2. You change to another ISP. Most of your friends/colleagues will know your personal email address from your original ISP. You may want to continue using your original ISP account for another month or so and have ERC redirect any of that mail to your new mail account until your friends are aware of your new address.

Example 3. You are going overseas and want the ability to check your mail abroad but can not as your ISP only have local dialin numbers. Why not setup a hotmail account and have ERC forward your mail to it?!
