Email to one IMAP Address sent to two recipients

Email to one IMAP Address sent to two recipients

My wife and I each have our own Comcast email addresses and we have one other email address for mail to be received by both of us. That joint email account is a Comcast POP mail account that automatically forwards a copy of mail sent to that account to a second recipient (my wife). I read the mail from the joint account and she reads the copy. The original joint email is deleted from Comcast's server when I download it to my mail reading program (Outlook) and hers is deleted when she downloads the copy. Now here's the problem. I want to switch to IMAP email but I understand that there is no way to automatically send a copy of IMAP email to a second account. We could both view the original joint email on the IMAP account but if one of us deletes it the other person won't see it. Does anyone have a workaround for this?

Re: Email to one IMAP Address sent to two recipients

If you've set the forwarding prefernces in your Account Preferences, you can forward the message there, ensure you select to keep a copy.  The message should go to both accounts.  IMAP and POP are independent of this setting.
