    Hi,

    i have two domains in my server, one parked (inactive website) and one active(working with website, email accounts -same as old accounts as old-domain.com-, etc().
    Now i need send all email income to old-domain.com to new-domain.com

    I did so:
    Code:
    1- DNS: old-domain.com (mx record point to old-domain.com)
    2- Website: old-domain.com (inactive for do redirect later)
    3. Email Routing: old-domain.com to new-domain.com (read another post about not create email domain for that old-domain)
    i hope:
    Code:
    jhon@old-domain.com => jhon@new-domain.com
    doe@old-domian.com => doe@new-domain.com
    *@old-domain.com => [matched]@new-domain.com
    but do not work: when send an email to jhon@old-domain.com nothing income in jhon@new-domain.com
    Code:
    Delivery Status Notification (Failure)
    550 5.1.1 <jhon@old-domain.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in relay recipient table 
    what is wrong or missing?
    Thanks in advanced!!

    Hi,

    Instead of Email routing, try with Email Alias. To do so, you need to add the old domain as a email domain as well.

    Remember you need more than just a mx record, I mean, you should leave active the whole DNS records table and then just create a index.php file to show the website as inactive.

    Hi @DonniesCat ,

    Email Alias need to set every emails accounts to manage to. After some test I create an Email Domain again for old-domain. then go to domain alias. do old-domain to new-domain.
    I don't know if I have the better solution but it works now ;)

    Thanks you very much!!
