Plesk 10.1.1 domain aliases

Hey guys,

I've got a little issue and I'm not sure how to go about it.
I've got 2 domains and both are setup using Plesk 10.1.1 and work:
a.com
b.com

a.com has all the emails setup on it
b.com has no emails setup on it

a.com and b.com are both exact copies as far as the website goes
I want a.com to redirect to b.com for the website only so I don't have to update at two locations.

Now I can't setup a.com as an alias of b.com because it's got all the email accounts setup on it.

Ideas, suggestions?

In DNS, add a CNAME for  a.com to point to  b.com

for the  b.com domain, you should have 2 A records, one for the parent:  b.com
and www.b.com for the other.

Create a CNAME for a.com and www.a.com to point to b.com

a.com IN CNAME b.com
www.a.com IN CNAME b.com

I'm aware that I can use just use a rewrite rule in an htaccess file but I was wondering if there are other ways.

Cheers!
