    I am new to cPanel, so I must apologize in advance if this seems trivial. I am using only experience from postfix...

    I want to forward all mail addressed to a cpanel address to a different user in a different domain. I do NOT want a local copy kept.

    For example, if my domain is domain1.com. I want to forward all incoming email for bill@domain1.com to billy@outsidedomain.com somewhere else on the net. I do not want a local copy kept by the domain1.com cpanel.

    In postfix under ubuntu all I would do is create the line
    bill@domain1.com billy@outsidedomain.com
    in /etc/virtual and it would do what I want. bill would not exist at as a user at all on domain1.com.

    I have tried forwarders and filters to not avail. Help appreciated.

    Delete the account bill@domain1 and just create a forwarder bill@domain1, all email will be forwarded only, nowhere for it to land on your end.

    That's what I thought and I tried this. When I sent mail to bill@domain1.com it was bounced. The email trace of the event says that it was bounced because "No Such User Here". It is not foward it to the outside address (billy@outsidedomain.com).
