an email to yourself from the same email account using Mozilla Thunderbird. It will go but never download to your computer. It will stay on the server in the inbox. Just make sure to use the correct settings. I like to combine my 2 email accounts and use message filters, instead on using separate email accounts for checking.

I use Pop3 SSL Port 995 TLS Port 587

Remember to change the settings, forwarding and Pop/Imap on the webserver so you'll get email notifications.

All emails come to the inbox and then I use message filters that sort out my emails. I track some emails from this forum and then it goes to the CNET folder, so I know to check this folder first.

Just remember you cannot email yourself emails using POP3 or imap.
