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.

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.
