Mail Forwarders #BigBlunder
« on: January 18, 2022, 10:57:50 PM »
The way Control Web Panel handles email forwarders is a big big nightmare.

Recently, I migrated accounts from cPanel to CWP7pro, all email accounts having forwarders stopped receiving emails in their mailbox while emails were getting delivered to the forwarded account.

On checking I found that here in CWP7pro you have to add the forwarding address too to the forwarded address along with the other forwarded address, else the forwarding email account will stop receiving mails in their inbox.

This behaviour make no sense, in last three decades I have not seen a single mail server behaving like this, imagine dealing with thousands of mail accounts going defunct.

Hopefully CWP dev team will be able to fix this in upcoming versions.

For now, where & how can we fix the existing mail boxes in a quick & fast manner?

you can't do it in a faster way. The devs made it so that you will have to add the forwarding email address to the forwarding list so it itself can receive a copy of the mail.

I mean, I have a dozen of forwarders, but they are not mailboxes, so it would be weird if the panel tried to send a copy of the mail to a forwarding address without a mailbox.

You can try to write yourself a script or SQL to input it directly into the Postfix Admin - Virtual Aliases database, but the time you use to do that, it would probably be the same if you just do it manually through the panel.
