How to set up email forwarding (redirects).

This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel.

Now let's learn how to set up an email forwarder, or redirect.

1) Click the Forwarders link. 


There are currently no forwarders set up in this account. Let's set one up.


2) Click the Add Forwarder link. 


Here is where you add a new email forwarder, also known as email redirect.


3) Enter the email prefix in the box after "Address to Forward." 


If you have more than one domain in your account (an add-on or a parked domain), choose the one you want to create.


4) Enter the forwarding email address (where you want these emails sent.) 


5) Click the Add Forwarder button. 


That's it! The new email forwarder has been created.

Now, when people send emails to demo@abc123.com, those emails will automatically be redirected (or forwarded) to myname@yahoo.com.

6) Click the Go Back link. 


You can see the forwarder we just created listed.


You can delete existing forwarders by clicking "Delete" under the Functions column, or create additional forwarders by clicking "Add Forwarder."



Note: In addition to setting up email forwarders, you can also set up domain forwarders, so that all email sent to addresses within a domain would be forwarded to a specific email address.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to create new email forwarders or redirects.
