Setting up an email forwarder in cPanel is a quick and easy process. To be clear, email forwarding is a service that redirects emails sent to one address, to another.
For example, you might have an email account that you use to send and receive emails – lets say the address is email@example.com. What if you wanted to use that same account to pick up emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org? Well, that’s where email forwarding comes in.
To set this up in cPanel, simply login to your account (normally found at mydomain.com/cpanel).
Once logged in, look for the “Mail” section and click the “Forwarders” button.
On the next screen, press the button labelled “Add Forwarder”.
Type into the first text field the email address that you’d like to forward to another, and the destination address in the text field underneath.
Press the “Add Forwarder” box to save the settings and in this example, all emails sent to email@example.com will be delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
