Forwarding your email
Forwarding an email means that you are taking email from one email address and sending it to another email address. Let's say that you have two email addresses, Bob@example.com and Bobthegreat@gmail.com. You can set it up so all the email from Bob@example.com goes to Bobthegreat@gmail.com
Select forwarders from Mail.
Click Add Forwarder
- Enter the details below
Enter the email address that you want the email forwarded to.
You will see a third option as shown in the image above.
Discard with error to sender (at STMP time):
You will use this when the email address no longer exists and you want to send a failure message responding back to the person that sent an email.
Next, you will see Advanced options
Pipe to a program
This is a whole different feature that I will not be going into. A short description on what pipe forwarding is though.
Basically it's sending your domain name email to a software(script). Some softwares require you to set this up.
If you want to learn how to Pipe to a program, I suggest googling what software you want to set it up for because all softwares require different method.
Next you see Discard (Not recommended)
Cpanel should remove this feature.
If you use this feature, email will vanish into thin air.
Once you have completed the above, click Add Forwarder. Congratulations!
You have now mastered email forwarding!
