Hi there,
I'm new to cPanel, have been using Plesk for years.
What I'm trying to do is this.
Forward all mail to address a: [email protected] to another address: [email protected]
domain.com is hosted by me, but what I'm trying to do is avoid any msg's sent to [email protected] ending up sitting in that mailbox on the server.
I have been doing some reading, & it *may* be that I don't actually need a mailbox for the forwarder to work - is that correct?
This is how I had things set up on my old hosting under Plesk - no mailbox, just a forwarder.
What exactly is the difference between a forwarder & an alias in this situation (under cPanel)?
Is one a better solution than the other?
Any advice very much appreciated.
Thanks,.
Jason

Ok, I'm still not having any luck.
So...
  1. should I use a filter or a forwarder?
  2. if a filter - should it be an account level filter, or a user level filter? (I have multiple domains under this account).
  3. if a filter - are there any recommended ways to set this up? (see attached)
Is it really this difficult to set up a mail forwarder in cPanel? Or am I just making a meal of it?
Thank you :)
