how to set up email forwarding on a new account

Hi, we just recently bought a new domain name packerscanoeclub.com, and I would like to set up some email forwarding on it. Various posts online say that I should get 100 credits for doing this, but when I look under my account I can't see the email forwarding option. Can anyone help ?

@TimHeap46 I do not believe that domains come with email and email forwarding anymore. You'll more than likely need to purchase an email plan for the domain and then setup the forwarding. https://www.godaddy.com/email/professional-business-email

Re: how to set up email forwarding on a new account

Hello Tim,

 

You can use services like http://emailforward.mx , they are specilized in email forwarding. 

 

  1. Sign up for an account with https://emailforward.mx
  2. Log in to your account at https://sso.godaddy.com/ by entering your username and Password.  
  3. Go to your DNS records ( On the My Products page, next to the domain you want to select, click DNS.)
  4. First, delete the current MX records that send mail to your old email provider. After that you'll add new MX records for @Emailforward.mx.
  5. To direct your email to your @Emailforward.mx account, you have to add new MX records to your domain. These are the records that you need to add: mx1.emailforward.mx with Priority 10 and mx2.emailforward.mx. with Priority 20

 

That should resolve your issue.
