ForwardersEmail forwarders such as email@example.com can forward email to another address like firstname.lastname@example.org. 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:
email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org
send yourself an email to email@example.com from an different account than firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sending from email@example.com
The easiest way is to send email from a firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
