How to create email forwarder

What is email forwarding?

Email forwarding is a service provided by 000webhost for free hosting clients without any charge. It means an email sent to one address can be re-delivered to another without being stored on 000webhost mail servers.

What is the difference between regular email and a email forwarding?

Regular email, and forwarding email accounts, are two different account types. You can only have email forwarder in free hosting account.

Regular email accounts enable you to send, receive, and access your email from webmail, or using an email client application (like Outlook, or Apple Mail, for example).

Forwarding email accounts allow you to automatically direct incoming messages to another email address, such as your Gmail account. There is no inbox for a forwarding account, and nothing is stored. We redirect any email messages sent to your forwarding account address to the other email address you specify.

Why can’t I create mail forwarder on CNAME pointed domain?
