Redirecting Mail Problems? - try this.

    I recently needed to redirect mail from info @ example.com to xyz @ example.com. Both mailboxes are on my VPS.

    I created a new mail name of 'info' without a password, or control panel access, or a mailbox. I then enabled 'redirect' for the name and entered 'xyz' for the address.

    This works fine, however... when I tried the same procedure to redirect mail to an external mail account on another server, it didn't work at all.

    To get the redirect function to function, I found I had to add a password and tick the CP access box for the mail name. I suspect you should do this anyway, but it is not a requirement and it caused problems for me.
