How to configure email forwarders in cPanel

This article describes how to configure email forwarders in cPanel.

About email forwarders

By configuring email forwarders in cPanel, you can automatically forward a message from one email account to another email account. You can also do the following:

  • Forward messages from one account to multiple accounts by creating multiple forwarders.
  • Forward messages from a non-existent account to another account. For example, even though you may not have an [email protected] email account configured on your server, you can still set up a forwarder that forwards messages sent to [email protected] to another account.

Adding an email forwarder

To add an email forwarder in cPanel, follow these steps:

  1. In the Email section of the cPanel home screen, click Forwarders.
  2. Click Add Forwarder.
  3. In the Address to Forward text box, type the e-mail address that you want to forward.
  4. Select a destination for the forwarded message:
    • To forward the message to another address, type the email address in the Forward to Email Address text box.
    • To discard the message and send an error to the sender, click Discard and send an error to the sender (at SMTP time). You can also optionally set the text for the error message that the sender receives in the Failure Message (seen by sender) field.
  5. Click Add Forwarder.

Deleting an email forwarder

You can delete an email forwarder when you no longer need it. However, you cannot modify an email forwarder. If you need to modify an email forwarder, delete it and create a new one.

To delete an email forwarder, follow these steps:

  1. In the Email section of the cPanel home screen, click Forwarders.
  2. Click Delete next to the forwarder that you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete Forwarder to confirm the deletion.
