In this article, we explain how to setup routing and forward received emails to the email address of your choice when using the Routing feature in Kingmailer, you don’t need a web hosting for this. All you need for this, is a domain and a free Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or Proton email address (can work with any provider).
Mailgun w/Routes no longer free. Need email forwarder and/or SMTP plugin alternative!
In this article we will assume you have already signed up for a free Kingmailer account, and have already setup your domain (SPF, DKIM, MX, RETURN PATH).
If you would also like to send emails using your domains (not just receive), make sure to follow the instructions from point 4.
Here’s how to get started. If you need help, just send us an email email@example.com:
- 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
So there you have it, you can now route emails to addresses of your choice. You can also send and/or receive emails in your Gmail using your own domain. Create/Route as many email addresses you want, have the emails delivered to your Gmail, at no extra costs.
In this tutorial I have worked with Gmail, but you can use any other provider such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Proton etc.
