You can use cPanel email forwarder option to forward your emails to any other email account. However, it will keep a copy at the main email address and send one copy to the forwarding email account. So eventually, you will have 2 emails. However, in our case, we need to delete the email in the main account which is forwarded to the forwarding email account. cPanel doesn't provide this as a direct functionality but you need to set an email filter rule to achieve this.
Please refer to the following steps to delete the forward email copies in cPanel.
- Login to your cPanel.
- Go to Email-filters.
- Search your email account where you need to set email forwarding and click on the Manage Filters >> Create a New Filter.
- At the Rules section, choose Any Header and Contains and put your email address on which you need to set the email forwarding.
- At the Actions section, choose Redirect to Email and enter the email account where you want to forward your email account.
- Click on the Save button.
This is it. You are done with deleting the forward email copies in cPanel.
