Email Forwarding

Email Forwarding feature lets you use your custom domain in your email address, so your email address can be just as memorable as your blog. All your mail will be forwarded to an email address you choose.

For example: if your email address is john.smith123@yahoo.com, and you have the domain example.com in your blog, you can set up jsmith@example.com using Email Forwarding. Emails sent to jsmith@example.com will arrive at john.smith54915@yahoo.com

Managing email forwarding

You can configure Email Forwarding from My Domains, by clicking the Edit button next to your domain and then Email.

To set up a new email forward, enter the new email address you want to create in the first field, and the destination email address in the second field. You will receive an activation email in the destination address specified.

The email address recipients see depends on how your email client is configured. Here are instructions on setting this up on some popular email clients:

Please note Gmail will not allow you to send emails from an alias. If you use Gmail, you need to sign up for email hosting with Google Apps.
