Email forwarding / routing, means emails send to your business domain address, and have these emails delivered / forwarded routed to an existing Gmail / Proton / Outlook account.
In this article, we explain how to setup email forwarding /routing using your own domain.
We will assume you have already signed up for a free Kingmailer account, and have already setup your domain. (SPF, DKIM, MX and RETURN PATH)
First thing after adding/verifying your domain in your account is, to create Endpoints.
Follow the steps below to create an Endpoint, from Step 4 we explain how to send emails from Gmail, so not just to forward emails:
Here’s how to get started. If you need help, just send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Create Endpoints
An Endpoint is where you want the emails to be delivered, it can be your Gmail-address.
In your Kingmailer-account go to Routing (1), click on Address Endpoints (2) and then on Add your first address endpoint (3).
- Enter your email address
Enter your email address (1) and click Create address endpoint (2).
- Create a Route
The Endpoint is there, so now you can create any email address you like, all emails send to this address will be delivered (forwarded/routed) to the Endpoint aka your Gmail address.
Enter a username (1) for your email address for example info@domain so there you’ll enter just info. Select the domain (2) (which you already verified in your account: SPF, DKIM, MX and Return Path). Choose the Endpoint (3) which you created earlier.
- Sending Emails from Gmail
Go to Settings > Accounts and Import > Add another email address > Send mail as
- Add your email address
Enter your name and your email address, allow Treat as an alias and then Next Step
- Enter the SMTP credentials
You can use these settings:
SMTP Server: kingmailer.org
Username: enter your SMTP username
Password: enter your SMTP password
Port: 587, 465, 25 or 2525
Secure connection: TLS
These are all the steps needed to start forwarding / routing your emails.
You can create multiple addresses and have the emails forwarded / routed to a your email inbox.
In this tutorial we have worked with Gmail, but you can use any other provider such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Proton etc. You can add unlimited number of addresses.
