    What is this crap !

    You can't even make an email alias on the same email address?? How is that possible?

    You schould make that possible in your system. So, people don't have to empty there box that send to forwards. Loozing of space that way.


    Have nice day,
    Dave.

    I moved this post to its own thread, instead of resurrecting a thread that is now over four (4) years old. The original thread was the following:

    The closest thing to the functionality you want, in cPanel, is a forwarder. You do not need to create a forwarder as an actual mailbox. You can create a forwarder, without making a corresponding mailbox, and there will never be a need to empty an extra mailbox.

    For example, assume you have mymailbox@mydomain.com. You can create a forwarder, myforwarder@mydomain.com, and have it forward to mymailbox@mydomain.com. You do not need to create a mailbox named myforwarder@mydomain.com. If you do not create a mailbox, myforwarder@mydomain.com will be just that, a forwarder, not a mailbox, and there will never be a need to empty a mailbox for myforwarder@mydomain.com, because none will exist.

    I hope this helps. If I am misunderstanding what you want to do, please let me know, and provide more details about the functionality you would like to see.
