I have customers who have aliases (mailboxes with a full forward) to external email addresses on ispconfig2.
I can't do this on ispconfig3 because an alias will only map to the local domain account. I thought to try making an email forward address which points to an external address and then point the alias i created earlier to this local forward address causing it to send outside... nope, only allows mailbox addresses.
Thats all working fine for me in ispconfig 3. This is all possible in ispconfig 3 of course too. You mix up aliases and forwards here. Just enter it into the forward instaed of alias.

is there any way to have 1 email aliases to send to multiple people in the domain as well as external email addresses externally? this is the scenario that so far is limiting me to switch my users and their domains over.
Sure, thats absolutely easy to implement. Just create as may forwarders as you like and you can also mix forwarders and aliases.
