EMail: Relay same email address to different server

Hi

Testing the Email beta. Would it be possible to add the ability to relay as the same email address to a specific host?

For example [email protected] hits cloudflare and could be redirected to the same address but at a different mail server.

This way Cloudflare could be used to split a domain between multiple destination mail servers which serve a subset of the same domain.

Config option could be simply the servers hostname rather email address. Validated destination becomes something like “[email protected] via mail.mydomain.com

We have some customers who run multiple mail servers in different countries, or gmail, for different users. Their mail rules are a mess of forwarding rules.

For example a customer who has two sites that run local email servers and some remote workers who prefer gmail, could look like this:

[email protected]us.mail.mydomain.com
[email protected]us.mail.mydomain.com
[email protected]eu.mail.mydomain.com
[email protected][email protected]
[email protected][email protected]
[email protected]eu.mail.mydomain.com

That would certainly be nice, though you’d have to verify each and every destination email address. I suspect that because the current system isn’t configured to allow an unverified destination field, it can’t be set as an unknown.

I think admins would be fine with having to verify every destination.

Given:

[email protected][email protected]
[email protected] → mail.mydomin

The two verified destinations would be:

[email protected]
[email protected] via mail.mydomain

So every email/destination combination would be unique and verified.
