How to setup Email Forwarders

Overview on the email forwarder setup process in cPanel

Email Forwarders is a nice feature which allows you to have all received emails to an additional email address.

 

For example, if you would like to send an email to all your employees  in your sales department you can create an email account called sales-internal@yourdomain.com and create forwarders from sales-internal@ to the personal email accounts of all employees working in the sales department. This way when you send an email to sales-internal@ all your employees will receive the email under their personal mail box.

 

It is important to note that the original email will be delivered to the recipient mail box before being forwarded to any additional email addresses. You should have this in mind in order to avoid situations in which your mail box run out of quota and your mails are not forwarded. If an email account is out of quota all further messages are not delivered thus they will not be forwarded as well.

 

To create an email forwarder, please click on the Forwarders icon under the Mail section in your cPanel.
