    If I park a domain on top of another, will the emails automatically be interchangable?

    Eg:

    primary domain: domain1.com
    parked domain: domain2.com

    Will myname@domain2.com automatically be delivered to myname@domain1.com? Or do I have to set up a forwarder manually?

    I have set up domains like this in the past and thought that it didn't automatically work, and that I had to set up forwarders manually. But I just parked a domain for an account with about 75 email addresses, and in searching for a better way found that the tutorials online were saying that it's supposed to be automatic.

    If it matters, I'm using WHM 11.23.2 and cPanel 11.23.6-R26881.

    You would have to setup a catchall to do that if Im understanding your question correctly.

    Basically assign a catchall to each domain to whatever you want.

    A catchall would be if you wanted *anything*@domain2.com to go to specificAccount@domain1.com

    A domain forwarder would be if you wanted bob@domain2.com to go to bob@domain1.com, same with dave@, jim@ and pretty much anything - it just goes to its corresponding address @domain1.com.

    In cPanel/WHM environments, parking a domain does not automatically create a domain forwarder (for email). Domain forwarders (for email) must be created separately.
