    I need to forward all mail sent to info@... to 2 seperate emailadresses.
    Previously I could do this by seperating the email adresses by a ",".
    Now i get the following error: the emailaddress contains illegal characters.

    I also tried a ";".

    Anybody knows a solution for this ?

    Create an email forwarder for info@ for the first email address. Then create another email forwarder for info@ to the second email address.

    Ideally, yes.

    The developers have also created something to make this very easy (and also resurrects some functionality from cPanel 10).

    You can add officers@ and create the 6 redirects at once by setting the forward to address to user1@yourDomain,user2@yourDomain,user3@yourDomain,user4@yourDomain,user5@yourDomain,user6@yourDomain where those are your addresses separated by commas (no extra spaces). This will create 6 redirects to those addresses.

    And unlike version 10, you can easily delete one of these without having to re-create the entire redirect.

    Very nice, especially for individual cpanel users :) I do much of my stuff through WHM, so find some of configserver's tools indispensable, but I realize that is not an option for single cpanel users.

    Thanks for the tip DavidG
