ForwardMX is a simple but powerful email forwarding service helping you to receive all your emails to a central inbox fast & simple by changing the MX records for your Domain.
The last thing we want to claim is that we are the best solution for everyone. In fact some of you may already have a free solution that is just as good as ours. Let's ignore our superior privacy and look at a few others:
|DNS Service||Free Forwarding||Why choose us?|
|Cloudflare||We claim to be the perfect addition for Cloudflare. In fact Cloudflare is part of the reason we exist.|
|Hover||They offer email forwarding for $5 per address/year. Once you want 5 forwarding addresses, you save with us.|
|Namecheap||They are not the fastest solution, and sometimes bounce a email or two but if you're OK with that, we can't argue with free.|
|Gandi.net||They limit you to 1000 emails/month. We dont like limits, especially when it comes to receiving e-mail.|
|GoDaddy||Even if we dont know why you use GoDaddy at all. It essentially comes with the same issues as Namecheap.|
|Google Domains||Google Domains comes with free forwarding. But you're sharing all of your data with Google.|
Some reasons why we are still better:
It was a typical cold October day in Switzerland when someone called me to tell me they could not send me emails; my email was broken. Clearly, I panicked. It turns out the free service I was using with my domain bounced it because of "being spam". Was it because the email forwarding service had been marked as spam by my email provider? I don't know, but I knew I need a solution.
I owned many domains, and used about five different services to receive emails so as the surmount various limitation peculiar to each service provider. Some domain resellers may offer "free" email forwarding, but you lose it when you use Cloudflare as DNS, and the only services providing email redirects are either full (expensive) email hosting solutions, or not reliable enough for advanced use.
And there was the idea born:
Provide a service with a friendly interface, fast email forwarding and actual service.
We claim to be the cheapest and simplest solution to receive emails on your domains. If you experience the same thing as me, and you want all your emails redirected to your central inbox fast this may is the optimal solution for you too.
I also want to mention that I thought this through for days and came to a realization that I can not offer this for free while keeping quality high enough for my needs. As long as I charge a small amount, I can easily upgrade the specs of the servers per need and provide an always fast email forwarding service.
