Setting up email forwarding for your domain hosted by PowerPress Sites
You’ve got your new site and are excited about your domain. Now it’s time to receive emails for that site, without actually using a different email address. This email forwarding feature allows you to receive emails with whatever address you’d like, but using your new domain name. Setting up an email forwarder for PowerPress Sites Deluxe customers is very easy.
Please note that depending on your domain name provider, it can take as long as 24-48 hours for the domain to reflect on the new site. This isn’t always the case, as new domains that have never been mapped to a host should update very quickly. Existing domains may take longer.
