    How do you set up an alias to forward all emails which are sent to a local unix account to an external email adress? There is no newaliases command installed??? How do you activate the settings in /etc/aliases? Is this basic unix feature not available in CPanel?

    I recently installed cPanel for the first time and I noticed that exim secures the server so that mails to root@localhost would not be received, a window popped up asking me where to forward the mail to.

    You might find it in the mail menu of WHM.

    But I am not sure :D

    There is nothing in the mail menue. There you can forward emails on a domain basis. You can not forward per account nor setup email aliases.

    I solved this. I just set up the forward in /etc/aliases:
    account1: blabla@domain.com

    Thats it! No need for running newaliases when using exim!
