    How would I setup a catch all for @domain.com to forward to multiple email addresses. Currently in cPanel I only see it possible for 1 address.

    Separate email addresses by a comma.

    I tried that and it didn't work. I also tried to separate the email addresses with a semi-colon

    Edit your valiase file manually then:

    edit: /etc/valiases/domain.com
    find: *:
    make it look like: *: user@domain.com,user2@domain.com
    save & close.

    That works like a charm. Too bad you have to do it manually and not from within cPanel. I think cPanel should fix this.

    Thank you very much.

    Uhhg, just found out that if you go in cPanel and go to the catch all forward page (or defaul email address page) it messes it up.
    It changed:
    *:user1@domain.com,user2@domain.com
    to
    *:user2@domain.com

    Anyway around this?

    a simple roundabout way, using cpanel, is to simply have the default email get forwarded to an alias.

    then have that alias go to as many addresses as you like.

    Example:
    default --> catchall @ domain.com

    aliases:
    catchall --> somewhere @ otherdomain
    catchall --> overherenow @ otherdomain
