    Hello,

    We had a customer today email us about an interesting email problem. They have two separate accounts on this particular server that they manage, lets say:

    account1.com
    account2.com

    Now account1.com has a catch-all inbox configured (pop@account1.com). He wanted to set up a forwarder from the address addr1@account2.com to addr2@account1.com.

    Now sending email direct to addr2@account1.com works as the catch all kicks in and forwards the email to the pop@.. mail box. However the forwarding from account2.com does not work, the email is not delivered.

    In the end I have advised the customer to forward directly to their catch-all box which seems to do the trick.

    My question is, is this normal behaviour, or have we got a misconfiguration? Sorry if the forwarding spaghetti junction is confusing! :confused:

    hmm.. interesting, may be because the email has to be deliered locally.. not sure though. What do the email logs say:
