    Customer has changed their business name, and registered a new domain.

    I have setup the new domain as a new account on our cpanel/whm server.

    Setup user@newdomain emails, created forwarders from user@olddomain to user@newdomain, deleted user@olddomain mailboxes.

    If I send mail to user@olddomain, its recieved at the user@newdomain mailbox, but I also get a bounce message saying user@olddomain doesn't exist.

    Just for fun, delete the forwarder and then recreate it.

    Rarely should you need to restart your server.

    olddomain still there, correct?

    not really, but it had to go offline for a ups fix.

    Try creating some other email forwarder on olddomain, does that work as expected?
