    Hello
    I need to solve the following task.
    There is a mail box named office@domain.com. Server is running exim.
    I need to have mail forwarded from existing office@domain.com to few other mailboxes, BUT mail also to be delivered to mail box office@domain.com.
    I know that in sendmail there is no problem to have forward to the same mail, but seems exim has problem with this syntax.

    Can you hint me a solution ?
    "Forward" page in cpanel did not work for me as there is no way to add forward to the same mail address i.e. office@domain.com to office@domain.com.

    Best regards

    Hello :)

    Forwarded email is not discarded by default. Thus, you should not have to create an email forward from an email account to itself to retain that email.

    Thank you.

    cPanelMichael,
    Thank you for your answer and for your support.
    You are right - If I only create forward (from existing mail box) to other mail address the mail continue to be delivered in to existing mail box and forwarded to the other mail address.
    You save me a lot of searching/reading on the internet.
    Best regards
