Here's the situation:

Suppose I have domain: mydomain.com, which is the main one. Then, I parked and pointed the following domain to mydomain.com: mydomain.net Now, I want to create an email account [email protected] but I don't get any emails when I send there. Is this because it's a parked domain or am I doing something wrong? Do I need to set up a completely different account for this parked domain in order to receive emails for that account?

Thank you for your help

Any parked domains should appear in the mail settings of Cpanel.. ie: go to "add account" and you'll see a pulldown of domains (your main domain and the parked one) which you can add email accounts to...

You'll need to setup your email in order to receive mail to the relevant box...

Your parked domain emails will have been redirected to the main account in mydomain.com.

Just set up a new default address in Cpanel for the parked domain and your problem will get resolved.

Yes.
