    Hello,

    I need to create a wildcard forwarding to forward emails sent to
    user.1548987@domain.tld
    user.skjdhfgsg@domain.tld
    user.o948kokjo@domain.tld
    user.ANYTHING@domain.tld
    to
    someuser@domain.tld

    I found this thread but it's old... I'm going to choose CPanel instead of another manager for my VPS and I need to know if the solution provided in message #4 of this thread is really working... Could somebody confirm the information please ?

    Thank you very much in advance !!

    Best regards,

    Trucmuche

    Hello !

    Yes but this has a big drawback to me : I cannot use prefixes ! I would like to be able to use prefixes : all emails sent to user1.ANYTHING@mydomain.com are forwarded to someuser1@domain.tld, all emails sent to user2.ANYTHING@mydomain.com are forwarded to someuser2@domain.tld and so on... I don't want that emails sent to info@mydomain.com or contact@mydomain.com (or plenty of other traditional email addresses used by spammers) to be forwarded... and I don't want to have to create all theses email accounts manually simply to avoid the spam sent to those addresses.

    This is why I loved the regex solution ! :)
