    I would like to be able to specify anything sent to me+{stuff}@mydomain.ca be forwarded to me@mydomain.ca? How do I go about doing that?

    I'm happy to put in a forwarder for each mailbox if I have to.

    But a forwarder such as 'me+*@mydomain.ca -> me@mydomain.ca' doesn't work.

    Assuming forwarder is even the place to do this.

    Help please.

    How about using an _ instead. I have a customer who has about 50 forwarders set up using xxx_paypal, xxx_bestbuy and all kinds of other things and he forwards them to xxx@domain.com.

    I realize if you are moving an existing mail system to a new machine and + worked on the old system, then you really must have the functionality of using +. But if it's a new domain and you are starting from scratch, just use _.

    I really don't care what the forwarding character is, the point is merely that I only put in one forwarder (if I can't put one in for the entire domain so that {anyone}+{anything}@mydomain.ca goes to the corresponding {anyone}@mydomain.ca account.)

    If I have to put in a forwarder for each, then the point of the effort is lost.

    Really, I'd just like forwarders to accept regex.

    Looking through the feature requests for mail forwarders, I don't see anything like a regex. You may want to submit a feature request for this at http://bugzilla.cpanel.net as this definitely seems like it would be a useful feature. I know some free mail providers such as Yahoo Mail are now supporting such functionality.

    Thank you for your message.

    I am a cPanel user, not a cPanel purchaser.

    As a result:

    > You may want to submit a feature request for this at http://bugzilla.cpanel.net as this definitely seems like it would be a useful feature. I know some free mail providers such as Yahoo Mail are now supporting such functionality.

    Please do so.

    Anyone is welcome to submit requests to the bugzilla system regardless if you're an end-user or a customer etc.

    Thank you for your note. I understand that.

    From the messages, I understood this to have become a sales issue, and keeping the feature list competitive.
