Removing indexed pages from a old domain novustek msg:3519170 10:30 am on Dec 3, 2007 (gmt 0) I think the answers is i cant, but here goes.
My website has changed its domian name. I have some URL's indexed under ABC.com and ZYX.com. ZYX.com now just forwards to ABC.com. Will www.ZYX.com/homepage.html (for example) fall out on their own now its only forwarding. Or is there something i can do to remove them, ive tried using the removal tool but it gets denied.

Make sure that the "forwarding" is done with a 301 permanent redirect, and the old domain will no longer show in the search results. g1smd msg:3519730 10:55 pm on Dec 3, 2007 (gmt 0)
It can take many months for the old URLs to drop out of the index.
As Tedster says, do make sure that it really is a 301 redirect.
