Email forwarders don't work with Deluxe Linux Hosting with cPanel

I've just upgraded to "Deluxe Linux Hosting with cPanel" hosting account. In it I have one primary domain and a couple of secondary (addon) domains mapped to subfolders. 

I'm using cPanel to create email forwarders. The forwarders I create for email addresses of the secondary domains - work fine. However, the forwarders I create for email addresses of my primary domain - refuse to work. For example: 

  • is a "normal" email addresses I created, which works great. 
  • is a forwarder to (or any external email address). 

Any attempt to send something to -- bounces back with: "550 5.1.1 <> Recipient not found".


Re: Email forwarders don't work

Well, apparently it was some DNS MX record(s) that remained there from the pre-upgrade package... Once deleted those MX records, and redefined email boxes and forwarders, things worked.

Re: Email forwarders don't work

I have a similar problem.


How will I enable Email Forwarding?


I have a free email account setup ( But when I send message to the destination emails are not receiving any?


What setup did I missed? 

Re: Email forwarders don't work

Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to resolve this issue? The forward is set-up in the GoDaddy interface, and the MX records on my domain are correct and yet whenever I try to e-mail the forwarding address it still bounces with a not found error, so it sounds like something isn't getting configured correctly on the GoDaddy servers.

Remote Server returned '550 5.1.1  Recipient not found. <>'
