ForwardersEmail forwarders such as firstname.lastname@example.org can forward email to another address like email@example.com. These can be created like so:
- Login to icompendium.com/accounts
- Go to Edit > Forwarders > Add
- Enter the information for your new forwarder
Testing your forwarder
After you have set-up a forwarder, for example:
firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com
send yourself an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from an different account than email@example.com.
Sending from firstname.lastname@example.org
The easiest way is to send email from a email@example.com address would be to use a dedicated email hosting service such as Google Workspace.
Creating a custom address within Gmail
Some Gmail accounts may allow to to set-up an additional custom addresses within the account.
Why is my forwarder not working?
Some email service providers (for example, comcast.net) will periodically filter your messages away from the inbox, or not deliver them at all. This is usually due to overly agressive spam filtering. For best results, forward to a Gmail account.
