FREE Email Forwarding Setup (with all Domain Name Registrations)

All our domain names registered at KartHost come with Free Email Forwarding (along with Free Domain Forwarding). Here is how to set that service up in your KartHost Customer Center Account. Remember Email Forwarders are NOT mailboxes, they are only email addresses that you can use to forward emails sent to them to "Forward" to any email mailbox on the internet.

Note: If you have email KloudEmail Service, you will not be able to use this Free Email Forwarding Service. You will use the more advanced KloudEmail Email Alias System using Professional Mail or Exchange List service if using Exchange.

1) You must be logged into the KartHost Customer Center (Introduction to the KartHost Customer Center). Once logged in click on "Domains" > from the drop down menu click "My Domains".

4) The resulting page will place you on the "Mail Hosting" page, the page in which you will set up your Free Email Forwarders. If your DNS is all set up properly you will see "Active" next to Status at top of page. If your DNS is NOT set up properly (or has not propagated the internet yet) you will see "Pending DNS setup or configuration has not yet propagated."

We will assume your DNS settings are set correctly. If you are see the red message please red this Karthost Knowledgebase Article "Adding a MX Record". Make sure to use Option 3 for the Free Email Forwarding in that article.

Now click on the "Create Forwarder" button (arrow "A") on the page (scroll down if you must) to Create a NEW Email Forwarder.
Or Click on "Manage Accounts" (arrow B) to manage your existing Email Forwarders.
