Why does email forwarding not work with Gmail?
Every domain registered at Dynadot comes with free email forwarding that allows you to receive email to an address on your domain name, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org. The email is forwarded to an existing email such as your Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other email.
Yes, you read right - our email forwarding does work with Gmail; however, there is a catch. Sending an email from your Gmail account to your domain, which then forwards back to the same Gmail account, will not work. Gmail will detect the forwarded email to yourself and not deliver the email. We are not sure why Gmail does this. All other forwarding with Gmail should work properly.
