How do I redirect my e-mails? Print

  • 25

You can create as many e-mail redirections as you wish, here is how to proceed:

Step 1: Login

First of all, you have to connect to your Control Panel. If you don't remember how to do it, here is how to proceed: How do I log in to my account?

Step 2: create redirections

In the"E-MAIL" tab, select"Redirectors" :

Redirection e-mail


Then "Add a redirector" or "Add a domain redirector".

Standard e-mail forwarder

The e-mail forwarder will forward a copy of any e-mail received to the destination address entered. This means that if the address to be forwarded exists, it will continue to receive e-mail intended for it without any disruption.

Note: A common mistake is to first define an e-mail address (e.g. info@something. ch) and then create a forwarder (e.g. info@something.ch -> diego@ma-boutique-en-ligne.com).
In this case, the messages sent to the address info@something.ch will then be sent back to the redirection address(diego@ma-boutique-en-ligne.com)and kept on the server in the mailbox info@something.ch, which is generally not the intended purpose.
You can create a redirection without the e-mail address to be forwarded existing as an e-mail account.

Domain forwarder

Domain forwarder forwards any e-mail sent to a domain name, regardless of the e-mail id, existing or not, to the destination address entered. In other words any e-mail sent to an e-mail address ending with "@yourdomain.ext" (to be replaced by your domain name, e.g. "@something.ch"), is sent to the chosen address.

Just like the standard forwarder (per e-mail address), it will not prevent existing e-mail addresses from receiving messages intended for them.
