Setting Up an E Mail Forwarder

How to Set Up an E Mail Forwarder

Simple steps on how to set up email forwarding, which is also referred to as email redirect. E Mail Forwarders allow you to send a copy of all mail from one email address to another.


  • First you will need to be logged into your cPanel.
  • On the cPanel Home page, click the icon called 'Forwarders'.
  • You should now see the Forwarders screen, now click the option called 'Add Forwarders'. On the page displayed enter the prefix of the address you wish to forward. If you have more than one domain on this account, such as a parked domain or an add-on domain, make sure you are creating the forward on the correct domain by using the pull down box that lists each of your available domains.
  • In the next box enter the email address where you want these emails forwarded to. Click the Add Forwarder button, and that is all there is to it! It will take you to the confirmation screen where you can verify that the correct address is being forwarded to the place you wish it to go.
  • Now, any emails that are sent to the original email address will be automatically redirected (or forwarded) to the new address that you configured. Click the 'Go Back' option and you will see your forwarder listed.
  • If you need to delete the forwarder, just click on the Delete button under the Functions heading. If you wish to create new or additional forwarders, click on the 'Add Forwarders' option and repeat this process.


In addition to setting up email forwarders, you can also set up domain forwarders. This means that all the email sent to any address within a domain would be forwarded to a specific email address. You would do it basically the same way, just start by clicking on the 'Add Domain Forwarder' option.

You may now click on the 'HOME' option and return to the cPanel home page.
