Can't set filter destination to same domain, only external email

Greetings,

Following on from the thread located at http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19494&highlight=filter+and+email+and+address, I have made some progress but have now run into a wall again. Hopefully this thread might get a response...*crossing fingers*

I want to create a filter so that any mail matching certain criteria (eg: from [email protected] or where body matches regex blahblah) will be sent to a different email address on my domain.

For example, a spammer sends an email to [email protected] and the filter detects the words "Free Cable TV" in the subject line. I want to set the destination for this email to [email protected] rather than discarding it.

However, whilst I have managed to redirect emails from [email protected] to [email protected], I cannot get them to redirect to [email protected] - it's as though they must be sent to an external location only, which seems weird.

Any thoughts, comments or suggestions most welcome!

All,

This problem resolved itself two days later for no apparent reason. Perhaps it took a while before the new email address was valid or something, but in any event - the emails can be now diverted to an email in my domain.

I have the same problem, and it does not solve itself... :(

When testing the filter, it detects the subjects, and say it will be delivered to the email adress, but it does not do it when real mail is sent.

Any suggestions?
