Redirect to GMail + keep message on Plusnet?

I'm going away for a few days and, because I find the PlusNet webmail service on my Nexus almost impossibly unwieldy, I'd like to set up a forwarding to my Gmail address for the duration.

Is it possible to redirect to Gmail AND keep any messages in my PlusNet inbox?

All advice welcome! :smiley:

I have email readable on mine and my wife's smartphones and her I pad using the manufacturers email clients . Why would you want to use webmail on small screens?

Have you thought about setting up POP/IMAP access to your Plusnet email on the Nexus?

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.

Many thanks for both those answers! And no, I hadn't thought of setting up the account on the Nexus: I hate touchscreen gadgets and only resort to them when I really must!

Yes the generic email clients on smartphones are very good and optimised for the unit I've Apple and Android phones and both work well. I have them set up for Gmail, Yahoo, Plusnet and my own domain.

I use Outlook for Android on my mobile...

Works well using IMAP accessing my 1and1 based email.
