Question: How can I disable incoming mail for an account but still allow outgoing for it
I am trying to minimise spam for an Optusnet mail account by passing through the Gmail spam filter. I would still like to use the Optusnet account as outgoing mail address.
So, what I want to be able to do is to disable the Incoming Mail Server but still process the Outgoing Mail Server. Is this possible? I have tried putting a non-existent server as the Host Name but the Mail app complains when it tries to Fetch.
I do have a sort-of workaround whereas I have a dummy (new) Optusnet account as the Incoming Server UserName, but now my drafts and sent items go to that account rather than my real one.
I want to make this work because the Gmail spam filter is great. After I set my account up, I need to replicate the settings for my wife's account too.
