Additionally, Pobox also now supports URL Redirection for https — albeit, only for addresses hosted at domains; custom domains must still use the generic http.

Web redirection is not intended to obscure the URL of the actual website you are using. That is to say, when the page finishes loading, the person looking at the page will be able to see the URL of the page you directed it to, not your Pobox web address.
