How to set up email forwarding

Porkbun offers two ways to make a custom email address for your domain: email forwards and hosted email. Email forwards are free, but your replies will show as having been sent from your personal email address. 

Please note:

Wildcard or catchall forwards are not supported.

If you also want to send replies from your custom email address, you'll need to create an email address inbox using your domain.

Here's how to set up a simple email forward:

Log in. You should arrive at the Domain Management screen. If you're already logged in, click on ACCOUNT in the top-right corner and select Domain Management.
Identify the domain to which you wish to add an email forward and click the envelope icon next to that name. It will appear grey if you’ve never set up an email for the domain.
On the Email Hosting and Forwarding page, find Option 2: Email Forwarding on the right side. 

There, specify the name of your email address (what shows to the left of the “@”). Depending on the purpose of the email address, it could be your name, an employee’s name, or something like info, help, reservations, etc.

In the "Deliver it to:" box, enter the existing email account you’d like your custom address to forward to, and click the blue “Create Email Forward.”

⚠️️ Warning

If you wish to send a test email to the forward you created, make sure it is from an address different from the one you are forwarding to. This will prevent a "feedback loop" effect. 

Congratulations! You are now the owner of one very unique email address automatically forwarded to your existing account. You can repeat this process to create up to 20 active email forwards.
