Email redirection


#1

I have set up two email redirects, but they appear not to be working. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks
Steve


#2

Sometimes they appear slow, what provider are you forwarding to?


#3

I have tested it using the following:

gmail, icloud, and live accounts.

You say slow, I really do not receive anything.


#4

Can you go to SET MX Record under Set Web Address and confirm 000webhost shows and not Google? :slight_smile:


#5

Thanks for the suggestion.

The MX setting shows mail.post.000webhost.com

Any further suggestions as to why it is not working?


#6

@Steve9569 I see no reason for not working.
Did you check spam folder??

If you’ve still not received, try again with gmail.


#7

I have checked my spam, and no emails are residing there. my 000webhost site is redirected to a URL, and it is that URL which is the one used for the email redirection. Is this the cause of my problem?

Thanks for your help


#8

So, I still have the mail redirection problem. Can someone point me towards how I could sort out the problem?

Many Thanks

Might have to use alternative services such as Google or Zoho.


#10

That might be the last resort. But I would like to use an email that is from my own domain if possible. I am surprised that Webhost have not responded to this issue themselves rather than leave it to a customer forum.

The community forum is managed @akhilkumar332, myself and a few other staff members who are in constant contact with developers and system administartors, we have addressed the concerns but no issues on our side can be found; so we can only assume that we are blacklisted and you’d be better off using alternative MX records/ provider like Zoho for free or GMail.

@Steve9569 can you make a new email redirection "infinity@secklowhundredlodge.org" and the forwarding address "infinitydooper@gmail.com"


#13

email address redirect set up

Thanks


#14

Redirection is working oddly!

What email provider are you forwarding to in your case?


#15

The email I am testing with is ssbarker@me.com


#16

I have sent a few emails to info@secklowhundredlodge.org now did you get any of them?

I have successfully sent a few emails now to infinity@secklowhundredlodge.org and I’ve sent a few emails as infinity@shl to other emails and they’ve arrived :frowning:


#17

Unfortunately they have not arrived at all.


#18

I’ve a feeling then maybe @me.com is blacklisting 000webhost mailing services possibly :confused:
If that is the case then you can use alternative forwarding account i.e. shl9569@gmail.com to receive your forwarded emails and reply from as info@shl.org etc
Else you can go via Zoho or GApps

I was trying to get an @me.com address but they don’t appear to give them out anymore.


#19

OK, I have changed the redirection to a gmail account, and that appears to work.

Thanks for your help
