Creating an Email Forward Using Your Domain

Introduction #

Email forwarding is a handy tool that automatically sends a copy of any emails you receive to another email address. This is especially useful if you have multiple email accounts and want to manage all your incoming emails in one place. For instance, you might forward all your work emails to your personal email account if you check that one more frequently.
