    I recently took on an account that used plesk, I believe.

    They had about 50 email addresses being forwarded to gmail accounts.
    Plesk did not require the accounts to be created so there was no inbox to fill up only a forward.

    The way I have it set up now in cpanel forwarding works but the in boxes just keep filling up.
    Do I have any options or a way to make cpanel delete messages in inbox after they are forwarded?

    Thanks

    Do not make actual email accounts, just the forwarders.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    That should not happen. If a forwarder is set up without an accompanying mail account, mail sent to that address should be forwarded to wherever the forwarder points to, not to the catch-all.

    I should never trust what I am told, instead investigate it myself.

    You are correct cPanelDavidG & nyjimbo.
    Thank you, deleting accounts and leaving forwards worked perfectly.

    Issue resolved.
