Email Aliases - possible to forward to outside domain?

    I can do this with ease in Ensim - but - I'm at a loss as to how to do this in Plesk.

    Say I host 123.com and I want info@123.com to also send a copy of all incoming messages to xxx@gmail.com as well - can I do that?

    You can configure a foreign address for each box, next to the physical mailbox. No problem at all. Just go to the setup of the box, click on "Redirect", and enter the address. So every incoming mail will be sent to that adress also.

    I'm confused.

    'Redirect' makes it sound like ALL incoming mail to info@123.com will instead be redirected to xxx@gmail.com - and the info@123.com account will not see that message.

    Since you can add multiple email addresses (internal/external) to 'Mail Group' I think that is what I'm looking for.

    A redirect delivers the mail to both. The redirect on a box is an addition.

    Mailgroup is a feature to redirect copies to several recicpients like this:

    hotline@domain.com has the following members:


    So any incoming mail on hotline@domain.com will also be sent to these 3 accounts, also the remote box from mac.com. hotline then normally has no box.

    So we should explain those possibilities:

    Alias: receives mails on one certain box, with several names. e.g. "info@domain.com" has alias "sales". The box receives mails sent to info@domain.com and sales@domain.com

    Redirect with box: deliver to the mailbox and deliver to the redirect-address, dont matter if the target is remote or not

    Redirect with no box: Just deliver to another address, doesn't matter if it is local or remote

    Mailgroup: delivers to all mentioned adresses, doesn't matter they are local or remote

    Groups: delivers to several Mailgroups

    Autoresponder: automatically answers an incoming mail with a prepared mail and delivers to the box
