Email Forwarding takes an individual email account and forwards it to another email address. These email addresses can be different, as long the one you are forwarding is linked to your domain.


In order to create an email forwarder, you must be an existing email account to forward emails to. If you need to create an email account, simply select ‘Email Accounts’ on the left. In the first box, enter the email you want to create and the password.
