Add an Email Forward

Email Forward accounts can be very helpful, especially if you want to keep your personal email address private. Sometimes people will use this type of account for when many people need to get the same copy of every email sent to that address. This type of mailbox does not keep any emails for you, it simply receives email and sends it along to another email address.

As an Example:

You have 4 band members. You all help talk with your fans. You want everyone to get emails from your contact form on your website. You setup an account for sales@myband.com as a forward account. Then you put each band member's email address as a recipient on the setup for it.

Now when a fan emails "Sales@myband.com" each band member gets a copy of the email sent to their inbox, but no copy is stored on the server.

 

Setup A Mail Forward Account:

Start by logging into your Dashboard, then click Email Settings, just like we did in the article Add An Email Address.

The difference is when we go to enter information about the account, we need to tell it that we want a forward account this time, see below:

In the "Forward all incoming emails to:" section you can add multiple email addresses one at a time, making sure to click the ADD+ button each time.

That's it! You added a forward account.
