How to setup email forwarder and domain forwarder in cPanel

Email forwarding is a way to send an email that is delivered to one email address to a different email address.
Example: you have created webmaster@yourdomainname.com, info@yourdomainname.com, etc.
In this article we will show you how to setup Email Forwarders in your cPanel. Then, we will show you how to forward all email for a domain.

Step 3. Select the Domain you want to forward email from, in the drop-down box. Then, enter the domain you want to forward to. “Domain forwarding takes place only 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 auto responder, then the email will not be forwarded. The email will be forwarded if john@example1.com is not an existing email address or auto responder.”
