    I believe I can copy email by setting up a forwarding rule, but how do I set it up to redirect email from one alias to two other aliases, eg:
    send email for info@ to jim@ and john@ without leaving email in an info@ mailbox.

    The described scenario is possible by simply adding each e-mail forwarder via cPanel one at a time, like the following example:
    First, setup info@domain.tld to forward to jim@domain.tld
    Second, setup info@domain.tld to forward to john@domain.tld

    After adding the second forwarder you should be able to see both listed, though you can also confirm the same by viewing the domain's "valiases" configuration file:
    Code:
    # cat /etc/valiases/domain.tld
    In the valiases configuration file(s) forwarders with multiple recipients should have the destination addresses comma-separated, as seen below:
    Code:
    test1@domain.tld: test2@domain.tld,test3@domain.tld

    To achieve this you can simply set up forwarders for info@ to jim@ and john@ via cPanel but DO NOT create the email account info@ ! This way any email that comes addressed to info@ would simply get redirected to jim and john.

    Oh thank you InstaCarma_Tech. I was having problems with this. Probably due to me not initially understanding the default email was the catchall and it didn't work. Later when I figured out needing to add additional emails I made some assumptions about it not working. Such a relief. Thank you!
