    it's hard to explain.

    I want to forward all mail from one domain (a addon domain ) to a email address.

    What do I put in the forward field

    what @domain.com creates a catchall in cpanel


    It was just @domain.com for a cobalt raq


    Or I'm I just completly off my rocker ? :D

    Instead of using a forwarder all you need to do is set the 'Default Address' address for your addon domain.

    From the X skin select 'Mail' and then 'Default Address'. Click 'Set Default Address' and choose the addon domain from the dropdown box. You can then enter any email address in the form of user@domain.com.

    This thread is similar to a question I have, so here it goes:

    I currently have no email accounts set up, other than the "username" main account. Username is also the default address, therefore it is also my catchall.

    My goal is to have a forwarder to my business email address, but also have the mail able to be POPed from my home. I tried using *@mydomain.com as a catchall for forwarding, but that didn't work. So then I put in username@mydomain.com and that worked (forward to work and POPed at home), but only when mail was directly sent to username@mydomain.com. It does not seem to work as a catchall (does not forward).

    So, how do I set up forwarding, such that all mail, including catchall, can be forwarded to my workplace, as well as POPed at home?

    tnx

    Here are further observations. I have 3 forwarders set up, including one for my username (default email/catchall). If I send an email to any of those specific forwarders, it gets forwarded, then cleared out of the cPanel POP, so I can't get it at home.

    But, if anything gets sent to a catchall name "bogus@mydomain.com", it doesn't get forwarded, but is retrievable by the POP method.

    So, anyone know how to do what I'm looking to do?
