Domain forwarding and MX records

Hello again,

If I set up a domain forwarding filter, (example-com --> website-com), will the MX records that I’ve set for the original domain (example-com) continue to work or will they just be ignored? I.e. with the above example (example-com --> website-com), will an email to [email protected] arrive at its intended target, or just disappear into the ether of the interwebs? Or is there a third scenario I’m missing?

I would like email to [email protected] to go through while forwarding http traffic to website-com.


Setting a forward should not affect email. Whatever servers the MX records for your domain says, that’s where your email will go.

It will be delivered to one of the MX entries of the example domain.

HTTP redirects have nothing to do with SMTP or any mail forwarding.
