    Hello

    I am migrating my domain to a new ISP and need some expert advice, please. I have:

    mydomain.com
    aaa.mydomain.com
    bbb.mydomain.com
    ccc.mydomain.com

    Each has catch-all email addresses using the domain.

    My question is: Can I set up cPanel to filter all emails to all sub-domains without having to set-up all the individual sub-domains again ?

    Thansk in advance.

    Rod

    Hello :)

    You could setup an account level filter so that messages are discarded if the "to" address does not match a specific pattern. However, if your goal is to bounce all messages sent to non-existing email accounts, that behavior can be implemented by default. In "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings", under the "Mail" tab, the "Initial default/catch-all forwarder destination" can be set to "Fail".

    Thank you.

    Michael, thanks.

    I need to add that I want all emails to still be received - just, to confirm, not to have to set up the sub-domains again.

    Thanks

    Are you transferring the account from another cPanel server? If so, all of the subdomains and their email accounts/settings will be transferred over. You must create the subdomains if you want to setup email accounts for them and have them receive emails.

    Thank you.
