    Our company has changed it's name and likewise will be changing it's domain name.

    Is there a way that I can have cPanel redirect an email from john@oldmail to john@newmail AND send a message back to the person who sent original email to john@oldmail to let them know that my new email is john@newmail so they can update their records?

    I know this may seem simple... but apparently so too am I. :P

    Thanks in advance.

    John

    Hello,

    You could add the previous domain name to the account as an "Alias" and then setup a filter that redirects email sent to the old address to the new address, and then bounces the message with a specific failure reason (e.g. New domain name). Information on setting up email filters is available at:

    How to Configure Mail Filters - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
