Cpanel Email: feature combination/interactions
I cannot find any information anywhere that describes the interactions of Cpanel email individual features used in combination with each other.
(I do understand how to use mail features individually.)
Here's the incoming email behavior i would like to achieve:
1. Have the default address point to mailbox "X"
2. For a single email address "Y", have an autoresponder (or other forwarder response mechanism) to send a message back, but not forward this message to "X" per the default address catchall mechanism rule.
I've tried all combinations i can think of: blackhole, mailbox for Y, forwarder response message, etc.
Here are some specific combination cases:
1. when i have only a default addr and autoresponder, the responder works but mails do get forwarded via the default "rule"
2a. when i have a forwarder for "Y" to :blackhole:,
then "nothing" happens (the default address is not triggered which is good, but the autoresponder does not fire which is bad) . Evidently :blackhole: takes precedence over AutoResponders
2b. i added an explicit mailbox for "Y" and the behavior is the same as #2a
Does anyone have a solution for this seemingly simple puzzle?
Can anyone point me to detail information on the inner workings of Cpanel email functions, particularly relating to these interactions and the sequence or "priority" of how incoming email rules are applied (executed).
Cpanel features are growing in number such that interactions become more problematic. Especially with the new Domain Forwarding feature (that's a whole other box of surprises!)
