Do parked domains receive email for the main domain name accounts?

For example if I have email [email protected] and then have following parked domains domain.net, domain.org, domaindirect.com will all those parked domains accept mail for user?

Like if someone sends to [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected] will [email protected] get it?

Sorry if that all sounds confusing, I basically want all the parked domains to act as an alias on the main domain when it comes to the email.

Not by default.

You will have to set up Domain Mail Forwarding so that domain.net maps directly to domain.com and all of your other parked domains.

By default cPanel setups up each domain to handle mail individually. So [email protected] and [email protected] would refer to two completely separate e-mail accounts and would have to be set up explicitly so.

Ok so if I want to [email protected] to forward to [email protected] all I need to do is add the email forward domain.net to domain.com and then it will just forward email to the accounts automatically?

Will users be able to login to their email using one of the parked domain aliases or do they have to use the main domain in their email settings?

Like if someone is trying to login to [email protected] will it get them access to [email protected] or to get the email you can only login from the main one [email protected]?

They would only be able to access using the @MainDomain email address.

Careful using the domain forwarder option with existing addresses.

We just experimented with this out of curiosity. Just a note to be careful when setting a domain forwarding. It is important to understand that if you have user forwarders or true mailboxes setup for your parked domain, that will override the domain forwarding setting. If you want a 1 to 1 mapping, you will need to ensure you have no forwarders or mailboxes setup for the parked domain addresses.
