    Hi all
    sorry if this is a basic question but I can not figure it out to save my life. I am just gettting used to whm comming from ensim. In ensim domain aliasing is really easy. In the control panel you just type the domains you want to alias to your primary and hit save. I can not find any thing to do with aliasing. The closest thing I found is parking but that does not alias the mail. Any help would be great.

    by domain aliasing if you mean parking a domain; then it will happen via "Parking" the account in cpanel from the domain control panel.

    In a cPanel environment, parked/addon domains can have separate email addresses. However if you would like something@aliasedDomain.com to redirect to its corresponding address on the primary domain (something@primaryDomain.com), you would use a Domain Forwarder. Think of Domain Forwarders as Parked Domains for email.

    Users can set this up in their cPanel interface by going to the Mail section and clicking on Forwarders. Scroll down to the bottom of that page and you will see a action titled Email Domain Forwarders where you can set this up.

    You will likely need to be on the X3 theme to see this functionality. If you have not done so already, please set your users to use the X3 theme as it is designed to replace the older X and X2 themes.
