    Hi all


    Imagine this: I send an email to John@someting.com using smtp. Automaticaly, a copy is sent to whatever@something.com. Just like BCC: but automatically.

    Is it possible? Does cPanel offer this option?


    Thanks:)

    I was talking about the oposite. Example: Sending an email to someone that is not related to my company and my boss receives a copy of that email. Just like if i had added him on the CC or BCC lines.

    Login to e-mail interface (domain.tld/webmail) and open "Forwarding" section. There you can set up where to send a copy of e-mail.

    I think we're missing the (misworded) point of the original post.

    An email is sent from john@domain-a.com to steve@domain-b.com

    We want a copy of that email sent to archive@domain-a.com and boss@domain-a.com

    This, as you'll note, can't be achieved by using forwarders, because that's on Incoming email, not Outgoing.

    An easy way to manage this is to install MailScanner, which you can setup to deliver all incoming and outgoing mail (or either) to a third party... based on an address or a whole domain... just one of the many functions it provides.

    I have MailScanner instaled, but I have failed to find that option:( Does it need to be installed, like an addon?

    It's a two-step process.

    First, you configure MailScanner using the 'archive mail=' setting, which is '%rules-dir%/archive.rules' by default.

    Then, modify that file (archive.rules) to archive a whole domain, a single address, and whether it's incoming, outgoing or both:

    For instance:

    FromOrTo: *@domain-to-be-archived.com forward archive-account@archive-domain.com

    This sends incoming and outgoing mail from any account @domain-to-be-archived.com to the address archive-account@archive-domain.com
