    I have been looking around for a while now but cannot find anywhere how to set an email alias in cpanel.
    Email aliases are a simple thing, normally but there does not seem a place in cpanel where you can add an alias to an email account in a domain.
    Does anyone have a solution?

    ok, found the answer in the meantime.
    cpanel calls email aliases forwarders. so in order to set up an alias you set up a forwarder to the correct email address.
    But one thing that is kind of missing is a forwarder to an external address.

    In a forwarder setup, the address being forwarded to can be any address. Only the address being forwarded has to be something @ that domain.

    Yes, but... HELP!

    I get what you're saying about the forwarders, but how do you set up a forwarder on the main account - the basis account linked to the domain, when you click onto WebMail for the basis account, there are no options to add forwarders?
