I have been working for the last few months on a new service to address the need for a simple email forwarding service for your domain which allows users to be onboarded in as simple a way as possible. This stems from a few requests we have had from 33mail users for a similar service.
So picture this :
You are a business owner, Max, who has a number of employees who already have an email account but don’t have an email address at your business domain, say maxsbusiness.com.
Joan is one such employee and she already has a personal gmail account but has no idea how to set up a new email account for ‘sending mail as’ in gmail, along with Max not having the time or skillset to set it up for her.
Max sets up his domain on EmailEngine and adds the relevant DNS records, he then just creates a new email address for Joan forwarding to her gmail account and that’s it.
Joan will receive any emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in her Gmail account as they are simply forwarded by EmailEngine, and she can just reply to them as she normally would, but any replies are routed through EmailEngine and the headers modified so that the reply will appear to come from email@example.com rather than her gmail account.
EmailEngine also supports outgoing smtp if that needs to be set up but at its very simplest it provides a way to let people use business email addresses with zero setup on their side.
I have plans for further enhancements to the service in future but the basic service is now live.
You can check it out here and I would appreciate any feedback.
