    By default mail should be only forwarded and not stored in mailbox. You can check it in .qmail file. For example:

    deliverquota indicate that mail will be stored in mailbox. For forwarding you will see something like &<mailname>@<domain> without deliverquota.

    For example:

    Usual mailbox:
    Mailbox with forwarding:
    Mailbox with forwarding and disabled "Mailbox" checkbox:
