    Greetings,

    I have a client that has a question I am having a hard time answering. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    The user has one domain and has created 4 addon domains (add1, add2, add3, add4). He is pointing his registered <a href="http://go-all.com?go=domain+names" onmouseover="window.status = 'goto: domain names';return 1" onmouseout="window.status=''">domain names</a> (x1, x2, x3, x4) to the respective addons.

    ex1 - If an email account is created this way: help@add1.main.com, the email would default to help@main.com mail account.

    ex2 - If an email account is created this way: help@x2.com, the email would default to the help@x2.com (also known as help@add1.main.com).

    If my explanation is clear (as mud), in ex1, any mail sent to help@ any of the domains, the messages to help will default to the primary help account on the primary domain (main). So...if the mail is sent to the specified email acocunt (help@x3.com), the email would not default to help@x1.com, but to the help@x3.com.

    I hope this is not too confusing, but I really would like to make sure I have this understood properly.

    I think I am a little confused because I have seen a lot of discussion about subdomains that have the same email account as a primary domain email account name.
    In my case, I am using MS Outlook to perform the following function
    account1 - questions@main.com
    account2 - questions@add1.main.com
    account3 - questions@add2.main.com

    If I send an email to question@add2.main.com, the message does NOT go to questions@main.com...it goes to the questions@add2.main.com. According to most of the threads I have read, the email I send to questions@add2.main.com should be delivered to questions@main.com but it is not...it is going to the account designated.

    If you survived the read of this message to now, could you provide me with some guidance?

    Kind Regards...
