Halo Benoit,

Thank you so much for the clarification, turns out the solution was so easy, 
now my local james email and my gmail can receive the message. I thought the 
passthrough was a sensitive stuff so I didn’t change it and follow the default 

But another problem that I discovered is gmail think the forwarded mail is a 
spoofed message . Gmail said that the sender location are different from what 
google send to. I checked the header and the info still looks like im sending 
it to my local james email.

What I did basically :
- Send email to my local james email using my Gmail account
- local james mail server forward the message to my main Gmail account

So im thinking that I should change the info from the header so it looks like 
my local james email was the one sending the mail. Reading the documentation of 
forward and resend, I think only resend mailet that has the ability to change 
its content and header, but I cant test it since for some reason, resend didn’t 
work for me. I was thinking about setmimeheader, maybe set the header again 
manually, but I still cannot make it work.

Is there any way to change the header information before being forwarded? Any 
info could be really usefull.

Thank you so much once again.

Hi Jason,

Reading your 'mailetcontainer.xml' file, you trigger an infinite loop.
Every time you receive an email, you 'resend it to yourself and forward it'.

I'd try to:
- Only forward it to the GMail address
- Set the passthrough option to 'true': this enable the mail processing
to proceed and thus local deliver the mail.


Regarding RRT, this component is enabled by default. However CLI (only
way to configure RRT with James Spring App) does not allow setting
**Forward mappings** (allowing to forward while keeping a local copy).
Thus I do not think this could be a solution for your issue (this could
be a simpler solution for James Guice product).
