    I have an email box at user@mydomain.com. now I want to keep the mailbox but have a copy of every email it gets also forwarded to user@myotherdomain.com. How would I set this up? I have tried putting both a mailbox and a forwarder in for it, but it just goes to the mailbox when I do this.

    That is unusual. An account with a forwarder should do exactly what you want it to do. I'd verify that the forwarder you created is spelled correctly (an annoyingly difficult mistake to pick up on that I have made once before). If everything checks out there, perhaps contact your hosting provider to see if they're having any issues with forwarding mail to the specific address you're trying to forward to.

    :eek: Are you saying that THIS CPANEL forum is NOT for BlueVoda hosting customers only but for many other hosts as well?:confused:

    I have the same unusual problem too. Worked when I tested it to myself, but not when I used that email to subscribe to something else on web

    This forum is used by anyone who uses cPanel/WHM, and isn't dedicated to any specific hosting company.
