    Hi. I have some email accounts that I want to forward to an email address that isn't hosted on the local server. When I try do this through cPanel (v54.0.15) I get:

    (Warning: “forwardemail@remoteaddress.com” does not refer to a valid local email account or alias. The system will not create a forwarder, because it already sends that email to the default address.)

    I thought I was able to do this in the past, but maybe i'm mistaken. Is it possible to forward local accounts to a remote account? I don't want to forward an entire domain, but just a few individual accounts.

    Thanks for your time,
    -Scott
