How to setup email forwarders in cPanel

cPanel forwarders
Question: How can I use cPanel to forward emails sent to addresses in my domain to another email address?

Answer: The web-based control panel called cPanel makes it easy to create email forwarders. A forwarder allows you to setup any number of virtual email addresses within your domain and then forward emails sent to them to one or many different addresses. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Login to cPanel.
2. In the “Mail” section, click “Forwarders”
3. Click “add Forwarder”
4. Where it says “Address to Forward” enter the part of the email address that comes before the @ symbol. This should be a prefix that does not already exist as a real email address.
5. In the dropdown menu, select the domain name (if you have more than one).
6. Under “Destination” you can forward emails to an internal or external address, discard and return an error message, or “Pipe to a Program”, meaning that a script will handle the emails.

That is all it takes. Now email sent to the address you specified will automatically be forwarded wherever you want.
