Did you know?

Other email services advertise as open-source, but they do not release the source code to their back-end. The back-end is the most sensitive part of an email provider. It is also important to use 100% open-source because it builds trust and allows anyone to contribute and independently audit.

Congrats for fully launching Forward Email – a forwarding service for email that doesn't keep logs or store emails, and which works with ARC to ensure signed forwards don't trip email filters 👏. I'm a happy user! ❤️

Have now switched email forwarding from MailGun to ForwardEmail.net . Simple and painless (and free!). Just some DNS changes, and it just works. Thanks

So they made this cool app that forwards email from your own domain to your Gmail inbox. There is even a catch all option, so sales@, support@, etc all goes to your own inbox. Check it out! It's free! forwardemail.net

Open-source email forwarding

Unlike other services, we do not store logs (with the exception of errors and outbound SMTP) and are 100% open-source. We're the only service that never stores nor writes to disk any emails – it's all done in-memory.



We created this service because you have a right to privacy. Existing services did not respect it. We use robust encryption with TLS, do not store SMTP logs (with the exception of errors and outbound SMTP), and do not write your emails to disk storage.

Disposable Addresses

Create a specific or an anonymous email address that forwards to you. You can even assign it a label and enable or disable it at any time to keep your inbox tidy. Your actual email address is never exposed.

Multiple Recipients and Wildcards

You can forward a single address to multiple, and even use wildcard addresses – also known as catch-all's. Managing your company's inboxes has never been easier.

"Send mail as" with Gmail and Outlook

You'll never have to leave your inbox to send out emails as if they're from your company. Send and reply-to messages as if they're from you@company.com directly from you@gmail.com or you@outlook.com.
