    I have 2 accounts on the same server (to which I have root access, and own all of the accounts). One account has several POP accounts created.

    How can I set the other account to redirect all emails to the corresponding email on the other account?

    Example, I have account "example" and "whatever". Under "example", I have "info@example.com", "sales@example.com", and several other accounts. Now, I want "info@whatever.com" to be delivered to "info@example.com", "sales@whatever.com" to be delivered to "sales@example.com", and so on.

    Is it a simple matter of changing the MX entry from "whatever.com." to "example.com." then waiting 4 hours for the TTL to expire?

    It sounds like you are wanting to do Domain Forwarding, which differs from regular forwarders. You'd go to cPanel > Forwarders area and click on "Add Domain Forwarder" there. This is the description it has in that area:

    Ahh, thanks. I new about Domain Forwarding (and actually started to mention it in the OP), but thought that it only worked with domains that were parked on the original!

    Learn sumpin' new every day, I guess :)
