What is email forwarding?
Our email forwarding service allows you to create personalised email addresses based on your domain name (firstname.lastname@example.org, for example). Every email sent to those custom addresses goes through anti-spam filters before ending up in your actual email inbox.
Any email address, even if hosted on an external domain (@gmail.com for example), can be used to receive forwarded emails. In a nutshell, our email forwarding service makes it possible to redirect emails from a custom email address to an existing email address.
What does our email forwarding service include?
- An unlimited number of email addresses to cover all your needs. For example email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The option to set multiple recipients for each custom email address.
- Anti-spam and anti-virus filters to protect your regular email addresses.
- The option to send messages from a personalised email address, provided an email client program is installed and configured as needed.

Every email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will go through our forwarding servers and end up in the email@example.com inbox.
If your email address is displayed on several websites, you can end up receiving a lot of unsolicited messages or spam –especially if your personal data has been sold to third parties.
By creating forwarding email addresses, you avoid giving out your actual email address and you will also be able to manage your public email addresses at the push of a button. Plus, both those perks will help you identify which websites monetise your data.
