Sending Email

Updated 1 year ago

The email service that provides is focused on email forwarding, and we don’t offer any way to send email directly. We’re happy to partner with responsible and ethical email providers who are willing to allow mutual customers to send email from addresses. Currently we have such a partnership with Fastmail, which is great!

Sending email from the domain

Currently, the only way to send email from the domain (i.e. from is to use Fastmail. To prevent abuse of the namespace, our DMARC policy is configured to reject emails from unauthorized sources. Because of this, it’s not possible to reliably fake or spoof email directly from the domain.

Sending email from your domain

With our DNS service, you can configure your domain (i.e. to work with any email provider that supports external domains. The process for doing this will vary across providers, but will generally look like this:

  1. Add your desired email domain to your account at the email provider. This can be your (e.g. or any subdomain off of that domain that you wish (e.g.

  2. Your email provider will inform you of the required DNS settings. Typically, this will take the form of setting up one or more MX records, but sometimes also includes other records (for SPF and DKIM).

For example, when setting up a domain such as with iCloud Mail, Apple requires the following DNS configuration in place:

  • An MX record with the name and the data with a priority value of 10.
  • An MX record with the name and the data with a priority value of 20.
  • A TXT record with the name and the data apple-domain=FFmFXBRB0AlujVEc.
  • A TXT record with the name and the data "v=spf1 ~all".
  • A CNAME record with the name and the data

The records above are just examples (again, just for Apple’s iCloud Mail), and your own email provider may require a different setup.

Once you’ve configured the required DNS records, your email provider will likely validate that the DNS records are in place and that they’ve been set up correctly. Changes to DNS records can take some time to propagate across the internet, and you can use a tool like to check on the status.

Your email provider will likely inform you when they’ve confirmed that everything has been set up correctly, and then you’ll be ready to send email from the address that you’ve configured.
