    I set up a new email account and successfully sent an email to it and view it with webmail. However, the email was not forwarded. Any debuggin tips?

    Check the logs:

    /var/log/maillog (may not be present)
    /var/log/messages (just in case)

    Let me see if I understood correctly: email account was setup as mailbox and with forwarded email address? Test email reached the mailbox, and you were able to see it in webmail? It just never got forwarded to either the local other email, or external other email?

    Yes, that's the correct. When I tested again, however, it worked!

    In the first test I sent the message from the same email address I wanted it forwarded to. Perhaps that doesn't work by design?

    When I sent the message from a different email address, it worked.

    Theoretically it should not matter if you use the same account to send as it will be forwarded back to.
