    Does anyone know where detailed documentation or discussions exist that explain the
    usage of combinations of cpanel email features?

    For instance, there seems to be a processing precedence/sequence for the features:
    default, blackhole, forwarder, autoresponder,
    such that one cannot have an blackhole for an autoresponder address as long as there is a default catchall in place.
    (This is just one of several combindation interactions i've run into)

    An explanation of how the email processing works would be very helpful.
    Anyone know of a resource?

    thanks!

    p.s. in the example above, the solution is to insert an intermediate "temp" address such that the forwarder happens and then is in parallel forwarded to "temp" and only then forwarded to :blackhole:​

    Go on, have a guess
    Nothing that complicated since all the options you've listed are aliases and so the precedence follows the contents of your /etc/valiases/domain.com file in order. That's it.

    If you want to understand more, you should read the documentation for the mail server in conjunction with the servers /etc/exim.conf over at:
