Cloudflare Domains Email Forwarding

I have started using Cloudflare Domains for some of my domains and it works great, however, I was not able to find information about email forwarding. I did find a few threads, but usually they seem to deal with either Cloudflare providing free webmail UI with each domain or how to set up DNS so that email goes to the user’s mail server.

I am curious about neither (or both, depending on how you look at it): Does (or will) Cloudflare support email redirect. That is, any email to *@mydomain.example redirected to [email protected]. No email web UI, not gimmicks, just a single field where you type your real email and anything that goes to the catch-all email on your domain gets forwarded there. And you reply to those emails from the email you used for the redirect value.

My current registrar does this and I’m reluctant to transfer the domains I have set this up on to Cloudflare because I don’t want to set up an email server and figuring out how to set up DNS so that it goes to my current ESP (Fastmail) seems like an error-prone PITA.

Does Cloudflare registrar offer this and if not, are there any plans for it?

Cloudflare does not handle email at all. You’d have to point an MX record to a host that can forward email.
