With email forwarding, incoming messages are forwarded from one email account to another. We demonstrate how to set up an email forwarder in this guide for both your cPanel and Webmail. Then, we’ll walk you through how to forward every email for a domain.
What are Email Forwarders and how to setup an email forwarder in cPanel & webmail #
It’s a good idea to forward all email messages to one account if your company has several email accounts. Therefore, if you have email addresses such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com, all of them can be forwarded to that account. Either your Webmail login page or cPanel can be used to configure email forwarders.
Email Account Forwarders and Domain Forwarders are the two categories of email forwarders that you can setup using cPanel.
One email account gets a forwarder, and so does every other. Multiple forwarders may be created, but each must be created separately.
The foundation of global email filters is a domain name. The domain that you designate receives all email when you create a domain forwarder. This option, however, overrides the current domain configuration for email accounts, so use caution. For instance, any email for domain1.com will automatically go to domain2.com if you set up a domain forwarder to forward to that address. Email delivery requires corresponding email accounts; these accounts are not created for you automatically.
