Global Email Forwards

All FastVirtual hosting plans include global email forwards.

By configuring a global email forward, email sent to non-existent email addresses on your domain is automatically forwarded to the address you specify.

A global email forward can be used in addition to other email options. In this case, all other options take precedence, so that the global forward is only used when the recipient address does not exist.

Global email forwards are easily added and configured from the "Email" area of your account control panel.

Note: By enabling a global email forward, you will receive all email addressed to your domain, whether or not the the actual email address exists. As this will also increase your vulnerability to randomly addressed spam, unless you have a specific need for a global forward, we do not recommend enabling this option.

For further information, please see the Global Email Forward Overview.
