    Hi,

    how can I disable the creation of email forwarder for a webmail user? I have tried disabling "Forward manager" from feature list, but this only prevents a cpanel user to manage forwarders, a webmail user can still create a forwarder by logging in his webmail.

    Thanks

    Hi @Mike Vassileiou

    When the forwarder manager is disabled the option to create a forwarder is removed from the dropdown in webmail - can you explain how your users are able to set up forwarders with this disabled?

    Hi,

    you are right, if forwarder manager is disabled then Forwarders is also disabled in the webmail. Maybe I was already logged in at my Webmail when I did that change.

    Its working fine now, thanks!

    Is there any way of keeping Forwarders in Cpanel but disabling it for webmail users? I want my Cpanel user to be able of creating forwarders but the email account user not.

    Thanks

    Hi @Mike Vassileiou

    For that one, no there isn't, you could disable webmail but then your email users would have to use a mail client to access their mail.
