Problems With Email Not Forwarding Properly


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've got some problems with spam mail and I'm hoping someone has an answer. I have three domain names, all of which are parked on top of my single hosting account here at TCH. I have set up a default address (in cPanel under "Mail" --> "Default Address") for the domain 'kaseyscreations.com' such that all mail sent to domain kaseyscreations.com should be forwarded to my email address at yahoo.com. Instead, what's happening is that mail sent to any email address at kaseyscreations.com is being received by my primary email address (cpanelusername@pudgypuppy.com).

 

I never use the domain kaseyscreations.com. I'm just waiting for it to expire. So I know that any mail I get at that domain is spam. How can I set it up to forward automatically to my Yahoo account where I don't have to worry about it eating up space and bandwidth on my hosting account for pudgypuppy.com?

 

Thanks.

Actually, I can't be sure that it will all be spam. The problem is that I have some stubborn relatives who still insist on sending mail to my kaseyscreations.com address. I could just cut them off and let mail bounce back to them, but I'd rather not have to do that until absolutely pushed to when the domain name expires.

 

Until then, I want to monitor the email coming in to kaseyscreations.com so I can see who is still using the old address instead of my new address.

Then you could just take that one (or more) email addresses and make them forwarders to your yahoo or one of your other domain addresses (ie: delete the account and create a forwarder of the same address) and then do the :blackhole: to the default address so that only the emails specifically addressed to that email address get forwarded.

Thanks for the tip. I just set it up, so we'll see how well it works!
