We had someone ask how to setup email forwarding when they use their domain on ignytr.


Meaning... They bought a domain like rockstar.com and wanted to use it for an ignytr site, but still wanted to use and send emails using the email john@rockstar.com.


Normally you can set it up on your server. But because you are using ignytr's server, you just need to set it up under your domain settings.


You only need to do this if you are using the domain for an ignytr site and also want to use it for an email like in the example above.


For Namecheap see here: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/308/76/how-can-i-set-up-free-email-forwarding-for-my-domain


Note: It will be similar for other domain registers. You can just search their tutorials for instructions.


Using Cloudflare?


Typically, if using cloudflare, you are unable to use your domains email forwarding feature, as you are using external name servers. 


Until recently I was recommending Mailgun as a possible solution but it was fairly time consuming. However, thanks to a member of the community, we were made aware of using Zoho Mail. It's fairly easy to setup. Follow the steps in Zoho mail but in general the steps are:


1. Sign up for the free Zoho business mail account option:  https://www.zoho.com/workplace/pricing.html

2. Follow the process to setup account, which includes text verification

3. Assign a domain to Zoho mail (1 domain per free account, multiple domains require the next subscription level)

4. You will need to verify domain ownership by adding a CName or TXT record in Cloudflare)

5. Follow the steps to add your MX records and remove any existing MX records (this is done in Cloudflare DNS section)

6. Follow the steps to add your TXT records. (Note: you can easliy setup SPF & DKIM, which can help with security & in preventing mail from ending up in SPAM)

7. Setup whatever users you want

8. Go to the Zoho mail dashboard

9. Send test email, which should show up in your Zoho mail


If you want to use your Zoho email address for forwarding, there is an article at the link below, curtousy of Lifewire:
