How to create an email forwarder in Paper Lantern.
NOTE: You do not need a mailbox to install a forwarder. Installing a mailbox will store the mail and forward it as well. Also, spam blockers on the server do not work on forwarded email….so you may be forwarding spam if you get a lot.
You can forward to multiple email accounts by creating multiple forwarders for the same address. You can also create multiple addresses to forward to the same recipient.
This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to cPanel, and are starting on the home screen.
Now let’s setup an email forwarder.
Click the Forwarders icon.
An email forwarder allows you to send a copy of all email from one address to another. This is handy when you have multiple addresses, but only want to have to check one of them.
Click the “Add Forwarder” button.
Enter the email address you want to forward.
Then enter the address you want the message forwarded to.
Click “Add Forwarder”.
That’s it! The email forwarder has been setup, and will start working immediately.
You can return to this screen to create additional forwarders, or to delete existing ones.
You can also create “domain” email forwarders, where all email sent to a specific domain will be forwarded to another.
