  • Are there limits to email forwarding?

    Yes, there are a couple of different limits to our email forwarding: You can specify up to 10 domain emails to be forwarded. We will forward up to 500 emails per day for your domain name. Any emails above that limit will not be accepted by our email forwarding server. The email will either bounce or be delayed until you are under your 500 email limit again. You cannot respond using your domain email address as this is only a forwarding service, meaning you can only receive emails to your domain email address. You can only use our email forwarding if you are using our name servers. If you are using someone else's name servers, you will need to set up your email forwarding settings on those name servers.

  • 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, [email protected]. The email is forwarded to an existing email such as your Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other email.Yes, you read that correctly. Our email forwarding does work with Gmail. However, there is a catch. Sending an email from your Gmail account to your domain email, 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. However, all other forwarding with Gmail should work properly.

  • Can I set up email forwarding if I am using stealth forwarding?

    Yes! Stealth forwarding is completely separate from our email forwarding; the two do not have any effect on each other. For this reason, setting up your 10 free email aliases is no different whether you're using our name servers, forwarding your domain, or stealth forwarding your domain.Our email forwarding allows you to set up to 10 email addresses on your domain name, for example, [email protected]. You can then have any email sent to your domain email addresses forwarded to an existing email address such as your Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other email. Since the email is being forwarded, you cannot respond using your domain email. Unfortunately, it's not quite as "stealth" as your website using stealth forwarding.Learn how to set up email forwarding.Want to get email for your domain without having to forward it?
