    Actually, if mail1@ is an actual email account, setting up a forwarder will only *copy* an email to mail2@. That means the mail is delivered to mail1@ and a copy is sent to mail2@ so both receive the email.

    If mail1@ is not an email account and is itself merely a forwarder, let me know as that can be accommodated as well, the procedure is slightly different though.

    Thank you!

    1 email forwarding to 4 boxes

    Hello,

    I have 1 mailbox that needs to forward to 4 different email boxes, how do I configure this?

    The source box should not be keeping mail, only receiving and then passing it off to the other 4 boxes.

    Thanks,

    Micah

    With the latest builds of cPanel/WHM, that will work.

    Hello

    My cPanel is version:

    cPanel Version 11.18.3-CURRENT
    cPanel Build 21703


    I have no clue if that's current or not as I am relatively new to this provider.

    When I type into the the box turns pink, once I complete the first email address it turns white, once I put a comma and a second email address it goes pin again. WHen I click on the ! I get "Please use an e-mail format. (Example: user@domain.com)"

    So it appears to me I cannot set multiple addresses for a forward.

    Thanks for the help and if you can think of anything else I will give it a shot.

    Micah

    Hmm, testing this myself, it looks like that's been removed from the Javascript-based validation... again. I have re-opened the bug report for this: http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=5865

    Update on Forwarding to more than one destination?

    Does anyone have a solution for forwarding one email address to more than one destination? I have not been able to make it work. and i tried with filters just setting more than one filter acting on the same subject but so far the mail isn't going anywhere that I can tell ... mailboxes are still empty.

    You should simply be able to click on Forwarders from within Cpanel and then add a forwarder four times, each one forwarding mail destined for the same domain email address on your machine to a new destination email address.

    You got it!!

    That's how you do it. I just tested it out and it works like a charm.

    I went to forwarders and created 4 forwards for 1 email address.

    I set my hosting@websperations.com to send to 4 other boxes outside of my domain ie. yahoo/google etc.

    I sent an email and walla, it got distributed to the 4 boxes as intended.

    Thanks for the help!
