Setup an Email Forwarder in cPanel & Webmail
Email forwarding redirects messages from one email address to another email address. In this article, we will show you how to setup Email Forwarder in both your cPanel and Webmail.

What are Email Forwarders?

If you have multiple email addresses for your business, as the number of email accounts increases, you will need to open each account to view received emails. To avoid this problem, you can forward a copy of these emails from one account to another account, so now you only have to open one account to see all the emails. You can discard the email or send it to a program. You can forward all emails from your domain to another domain.

So, if you have info@example.com, service@example.com, and support@example.com email addresses, you can send them to one account, such as admin@example.com. Setting up email forwarders can be done through cPanel or your webmail login page.

cPanel allows you to create two types of email forwarders: Email Account Forwarders and Domain Forwarders.

Account Forwarders: This is the most common type of referrer. An account forwarder forwards incoming messages from one email account (for example, info@example.com) to another email account (for example, admin@example.com). Alternatively, you can send multiple referrals and messages from one account to multiple accounts.

Domain Forwarders: These types of forwarders forward all incoming messages from one domain to another. For example, you can forward all messages for the test.example.com domain to the example.com domain.

Creating a Forwarder in cPanel

Step 1.

Log into cPanel

Step 2.

Click the Forwarders button in the Email section.

Step 3.

On the forwarders page, click Add Forwarder.

Step 4.

On the Add a New Forwarder page, type the email address username in the Address to Forward space.

Step 5.

Select the domain from the drop-down box.

Step 6.

For the Destination option, type the full email address that you want to forward emails to in the text box.

Note: You can add multiple email addresses to your forwarder separated by commas, for example:
email1@example.com, email2@another-domain.com, email2@some-other.com

Step 7.

Click Add Forwarder.

You will then see a summary of the referral you created, similar to this:
“All emails sent to email@example.com will now be copied to you@email.com.”

Creating a Forwarder in Webmail

Step 1.

Logging into webmail. You can access Webmail by visiting yourdomain.com/webmail. Also, be sure to use the full email address as the username and password associated with the email account you’re accessing.

Step 2.

Now, verify you are logged into the correct email address and click “Forwarders“.

Step 3.

This screen shows you currently have no forwarders set up. Click “Add Forwarder “.

Step 4.

Fill in the field with the forwarding address and click “Add forwarder“.

Step 5.

Now, go back to “Forwarding Options” and verify that your forwarder is set up properly!

Forward All Email for a Domain

Step 1.

Log into the cPanel.

Step 2.

Click Forwarders in the Mail section.

Step 3.

Click Add Domain Forwarder.

Step 4.

In the drop-down box, select the domain you want to forward emails to. Then, enter the domain you want to proceed with. The official cPanel documentation notes: “Domain forwarding only occurs when a delivery is not successful. For example, a user sends an email to john@example1.com. If john@example1.com is an existing email address or an autoresponder, the email Will not send.

Step 5.

Click Add Domain Forwarder.

You are finished when you see a message similar to: “File updated ‘/etc/vdomainaliases/example.com’ All emails sent to example.com will now be copied to domain.com”.
