    Hi,

    We have some customers asking for the possibility like gmail.com has in the mail settings-> forwarding and POP/IMAP menu.

    They want to forward the email to their gmail account and use our smtp servers. Then they need to create the account in cPanel also to use our smtp servers.

    Is there any option to do the same as we can in gmail?

    See picture for how we want our customers be able to choose.

    We found a solution to this problem but is there anyway to do it a easier way than this:

    "f you create an email forwarder in CPanel that forwards email to test@anotherdomain.com, and create a POP email account of the same name – let’s call this test@testdomain.com – then you’ll receive 2 emails. 1 will be at test@anotherdomain.com, and 1 will be at test@testdomain.com. This isn’t ideal though, because sometimes you’ll need a POP account to reply mails with, and so you can’t just use a pure forwarder. Some email service providers such as Gmail has a “forward and delete” functionality, and this is a behavior we can replicate in CPanel. However, we can’t use the normal email forwarders. For this, we’ll need the account-level filtering function.

    Go to account-level filtering in Cpanel, and then create a new filter. In the “Rules” section”, choose “Any header”, and put in your email address (e.g. test@testdomain.com). Now for the “Actions” section, choose “Redirect to email”, and put in the email address that you want all these mail to go to (e.g. test@anotherdomain.com).

    Viola! You now have a “forward and delete” behavior in CPanel." ?
