Email Forwarding

Email forwarding allows you to receive CloudMailin email to your own domain name such as example@yourdomain.com. Forwarding can be set up at your domain registrar or from your existing email provider such as Google Mail.

Using email forwarding you can forward a single or multiple email addresses to your CloudMailin email address.

Note: When email forwarding is in place CloudMailin has no control over when the provider will forward the message. It can result in delays in delivery that are beyond our control.

Setting up Email Forwarding

Google Mail

  1. Log into your google account.
  2. Follow the link to Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  3. Click the Add a forwarding address button.

  6. Once the email is verified select the email address within the drop-down menu.
