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.
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.
How can I send messages from an address like firstname.lastname@example.org?
There are a few ways to do this. The easiest way is to use a dedicated email hosting service like Google G Suite.
As well, your email service provider may offer an option to do this (for example, if you have a email@example.com address, earthlink.net may allow you to send email from an address like firstname.lastname@example.org) using their SMTP servers.
