Forward Email to Non Domain Specific Address

If you have a non domain specific email addres - such as Yahoo, AOL, hotmail, etc. you will most likely have problems getting emails from your Zen Cart admin because of DMARC policies.

A way to get around this is if you absolutely must have your email go to your non domain specific account is to do the following:

1.  Log into your cpanel https://server.zencartwebsites.com:2083

2.  Click on the FORWARDERS icon that is under the Email section

3.  Click on Add Forwarder

4.  Enter a domain specific email address... such as sales@yourdomainhere.com

5.  Under Destination, click "Forward to Email Address" and put the non domain specific email account here.

6.  Click the Add Forwarder button to save it.

7.  In your Zen Cart admin, go to Configuration>Email Options and change all of the email addresses to your domain specific email address that you entered in step 4.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  DO NOT actually create an email account in your cPanel.  If you do, the emails will pile up and you will need to periodically log in and clean all the forwarded emails out.
