How to setup Email Forwarders

With Email Forwarders, you can send a copy of any incoming email from one address to another. For example, forward to so that you only have one inbox to check.

cPanel allows you to create two types of email forwarders: Email Account Forwarders and Domain Forwarders. Email Account Forwarders are assigned as one forwarder per email account. You can create multiple forwarders, but you have to do them individually.

Creating a Forwarder in cPanel:

  1. Log into your cPanel dashboard at or
  2. From the main cPanel page, look for the Email category. From there, click on Add Forwarder icon.
  3. On the forwarders page, click Add Forwarder.
  4. On the Add a New Forwarder page, Fill in the following sections:
    Address: Type the email address username in the Address to Forward: and select the domain from the drop box the user name is for.
    Destination: Type the full email address that you want to forwarder emails to in the text box.
  5. Click Add Forwarder.

Now the Add a New Forwarder page should show:

All email sent to will now be copied to

Note! You can add multiple email addresses to your forwarder separated by commas to set a forwarder for multiple email addresses at once. Example:,,

Now, the email forwarder was created in the cPanel mail forwarders and it will start functioning right away. When going to the Email Account Forwarders page, the forwarder will show up on the list. Now let's see how we can set up a forwarder through Webmail.
