The E-Mail Forwarding section allows you to create e-mail addresses with your domain name and forward
them to another address.
Should you ever switch ISP's
or free mail providers, just update your forwarding address here and your mail will go to the new
address. You may create 100 email forwards per domain. As you add more addresses the
number of blank entries grows for you.
For example, you could create the address: [email protected]
This is the first part of the e-mail address you want to create. For the address [email protected],
you would put " webmaster " into the blank in the User column.
This displays the second part of the e-mail address and is already filled out for you. You should see " hereweb.com "
in the Domain column, and together the user and domain forms the address: [email protected]
This is the e-mail address that you want all the mail coming to the address you just created to be forwarded to.
This needs to be a complete, valid e-mail address. It could be an e-mail account you already have from an
ISP or a free e-mail account. For example: " [email protected] "
You may create a catch-all address by inserting a star " * " in the user column. The star " * " is a wildcard meaning that firstname.lastname@example.org, where
"anything" is any word that has not already been setup as an email forward, will forward to the address you choose. This allows for your to get email @ yourdomain
if someone mistypes your user name. It also allows for you to use a virtually unlimited number of email addresses. Even though all catch-alls will be forwarded
to the same email address, you can check the To: field when you receive mail to see what address was used. Some people will use this as a way to track
marketing efforts. If you find yourself creating tons of emails that forward to the same place, then a simple catch-all entry will make things easier
and provide for more spaces to be used for other addresses with unique destinations.
If you get the error: "Error creating email forwarding record" this is because you have entered
a username or forwarding address with an invalid format.
If you want an address like [email protected] to go to
both yourself and a friend then simply make another entry with the same User name and
of course change the Forward To: to reflect the address of 2nd email recipient. You can
do this for as many recipients as you need.
