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.
