The documentation states that you cannot set up a Forwarder if a pop3 account exists for that address.

And you cannot delete the default pop3 account.

So how do you set up Forwarding for email that goes to your default username@domain.name account?

(or is this a problem with the theme we're using on our server?)

Thanks,
Rowan.

We've just made changes to the rules for 1.17 that allows you to create a forwarder overtop of an existing pop account. I believe that it will still not allow you to add a forwarder for the system account ... I'll make the change for the next release. This change will also allow you to set any forwarder straight to the system account "username" instead of "username@domain.com"... if you ever want to get email to you system pop account ever again, you'll have to set the forwarder to forward to just "username" (not username@domain.com), to prevent an infinite loop.
