Email Fowarding And Virtual Addresses


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to setup "virtual email addresses" through cPanel? I am webmaster for a domain hosted by TCH, and I need to setup a number of virtual addresses to protect private email accounts. :D

 

For example, mail sent to "info@<****>" will go to my personal email account ("name@****"). ;)

 

Also, the virtual address may forward to several personal email addresses - there are several people who want to receive the mail sent to "info@****." :angry:

 

Can you accomplish this through the mail Fowarder feature in cPanel? If not, what other route do I take to accomplish this? :yes:

I currently have info@domain.com going to both admin@domain.com and tim@domain.com. I set up two seperate forwards in cPanel. info@domain.com to admin@domain.com and info@domain.com to tim@domain.com. Someone here might have a better way, but this way seems to work for me.

Tim is right, thats the way to do it.

You can do the same for a form

forward the form recipient name to many departments

so all get a copy of a submitted form.

 

We really are like family here.

So if you need anything,

just ask your new family!

We love to help :D

Thanks all for your replies, and the nice welcome. :angry:

 

So, it would appear then that I can use a make-believe (virtual) address...

 

as in "<some virtual name>@****" and forward it to a real address...

 

as in "<real address name>@****" through the forwarding feature in cPanel. :clapping:

 

I also appreciate the suggestion about directing form output to multiple addresses, as this could save having to build lots and lots of forwarding rules. I use a contact form on my site designed by thesitewizard and I'll look into how to do multiple output directs. :thumbup1:

 

Thanks again!

Yes, I use the feature to subscribe to things all the time. When I start getting spam to that email address I remove the forward and I'm done.
