How to Forward Your Email to Another Address in cPanel

Email Forwarders IconIf you want to create a new email address, but want to consolidate your emails into another account, you can create a mail forwarder which will forward your email from one email address to another email address.  

People often do this if they want to continue checking their email in their Gmail account, or Hotmail account.

The people who send you email will not know that you forwarded your email unless you tell them or you reply back with a different email address.

  4. Enter the email address to be forwarded.
  5. Enter the email address you want the email to be forwarded to.
