Managing email forwarding at Godaddy
The main purpose of this post is to provide the direct link to the web page at Godaddy where you can edit and manage email forwarding rules for your domain and to give a brief overview of the concept of email forwarding.
Find the Workspace Control Centre
Creating and deleting email forwarding rules at Godaddy is done in the Workspace Control Centre. Logon using whichever Godaddy account corresponds to the domain email addresses you want to edit.
Email forwarding concepts
If you already know about email forwarding and catchall accounts then you can skip this section. If you’d like to find out more about these concepts, click on either of the bullets below to read more.
Create and delete forwarding rules
In the Workspace Control Centre you will see a table of existing email forwarding rules – it will be empty if you don’t already have existing rules. Along the top of this table you will see buttons to Create, Create Many and Create Forward. The Create and Create Many buttons create email mailboxes for this domain (assuming you have these in your Godaddy plan). The Create Forward button is what we will use to create the forwarding rules to our existing email addresses.
Create a forwarding rule
Click on the Create Forward button to see the wizard for creating a new forwarding rule.
- In the field named Forward this email address: , type in the email address that you want to create for your business. This will be something like [email protected] (assuming that franksbusiness.nz is a domain that you have registered with this Godaddy account)
- In the field named To these email addresses: type the email address that you wish to forward the new email address to, such as [email protected] If you want Sally’s work email to forward to more than one address, then you can add other email addresses here, separated by commas.
- If you have multiple domains in this Godaddy account, then in the field Plan: select the plan that corresponds to this email domain.
Delete a forwarding rule
To delete a rule, hover over an existing email forwarding rule then click on the red delete button that appears to the right. When a rule is deleted, emails addressed to the deleted email address (forwarding rule) will now go to the catchall account for this domain, if you have one configured.
