    I did some research online looking for a way to create an alias email address using cPanel. Meaning, an address that is different, but that will send all messages to a different email address I selected on that domain.

    I saw several posts about using a forward, but it does not seem like a "real" alias. The forward screen states the following:

    So, if I create a forward/alias like alias@mydomain.com and have it send to my main address at real_email@mydomain.com, it will send the emails from alias to my "real_email" address, but the paragraph above states that a COPY of the email will stay with the forward email address.. or in this case alias@mydomain.com.

    I do not want to fill up my webmail with emails... all I want is for the messages at alias to MOVE to real_mail without a copy being made.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you in advance.

    You can create a forward, only, and not an actual email account, yes. Try it. :)
