Just wondering if anyone could help me, I,ve set up a domain thru Plusnet but its for a friend and wanted to know if e-mails sent to the domain name can be redirected to his PC instead of coming to mine if u see wot I mean.........
If this is the wrong forum to ask this I appologise, tried to post on the web site forum but was told only moderators could post there
First you have to understand how emails for domains work.
You don't have separate mailboxes for your domains. Email directed at a domain will always appear in a plusnet mailbox of the same name. i.e. email@example.com will go into the mailbox called firstname.lastname@example.org. email@example.com -> firstname.lastname@example.org.
Knowing this, you can add a redirect to a mailbox via the Email Settings link under My Account. So you could redirect all mail received by email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org etc.
However, you need to add a redirect for every name you want redirecting. You can't have a wildcard redirect. You also can't redirect named mailboxes - these are mailboxes you have specifically setup that you access via username+mailboxname.
