In this tutorial:

In this tutorial we will show you how to Create an Email Forwarder in cPanel and Webmail. Email Forwarders allow you to send a copy of all mail from one email address to another. To set up an Email Forwarder, you can do so in your cPanel or through the Webmail login page. The advantage of setting up a forward through the webmail client is that it allows any users that do not have cPanel access to still have more control over their email.

Setting up an Email Forwarder in Webmail:

  1. Login to your Webmail
  2. Once you have logged in, make sure that the proper email address is showing and then click on Forwarding Options
    forwarding1
  3. Click on the Add Forwarder button:
    forwarding2
  4. Type in the address that you want the email forwarded to and click Add Forwarder:
    forwarding3
  5. Your Forwarder has now been created. Now when an email is sent to webmaster@whhsupport.com, it will automatically be forwarded to anewaddress@gmail.com. If you respond to any emails that are forwarded, remember that it will show as "from" the email address that the email was forwarded to. For example, if an email was sent to webmaster@whhsupport.com and was forwarded to anewaddress@gmail.com, when I respond to the sender from anewaddress@gmail.com that is where the email will be shown as "From"

Setting up an Email Forwarder in cPanel:

  1. Login to your cPanel
  2. Click the Forwarders button in the Mail section
    forwarders1
  3. Click the Add Forwarder button.
    forwarders2
  4. On this screen you can set what address you want the email sent to. It can be forwarded to an email address on your hosting server with Web Hosting Hub, or to a different email address. In this example, the email has been forwarded to a gmail account:
    forwarders3
  5. Click Add Forwarder and you can then verify that the Forwarder has been created:
    forwarders4

Congratulations, now you know how to Create an Email Forwarder in both cPanel, and Webmail!

Hello Amys94fr,

There is no available Catchall email. However, for your purposes, you can simply create a forwarder and any email going to the address will be forwarded where you indicate.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Regards,

Arnel C.

I have setup an auto-forward in a secondary email acct, but how can I make the messages get auto-deleted from original acct before my mailbox overloads?

Hello g,

Do you have a primary email account like user@example.com, that you created a forwarder of secondary@example.com to also forward messages to that primary email account?

If so, you can simply leave secondary@example.com as just a forwarder, and not a physical email account. Then it will only forward messages along to the primary account, and not store them separately.

If you instead are trying to forward copies of messages from user@example.com to secondary@example.com, and then have them removed from the user@example.com account. Again you could simply remove the user@example.com account, and just create it as a forwarder to the secondary one.

If you still needed to keep the user@example.com account for outgoing mail purposes, then instead of using an email forwarder you'd want to setup some email filtering on the user@example.com account.

You could create a new filter called Forward & Delete for instance. Then under the Rules section add To equals user@example.com, and under the Actions section use Redirect to email secondary@example.com.

Then click the + sign to add another action and select Discard Message. This will forward the message off to your secondary account then delete it from the original account it was sent to.

I hope one of those solutions answered your question. Please let us know if any of that works in your case.

- Jacob
