I’ve been using CF’s mail routing since about two months (thanks to Google cancelling the free Workspace).
I forward my domain mail to a personal Gmail-account.
To send mails I use ‘send as’ in Gmail and am using the SMTP from Zoho.
I discovered there is a problem with this setup and it seems I am not the only one (also other people not using Zoho’s SMTP so I think we can eliminate them as the cause)
When I send a mail to myself in Gmail (so [email protected] to [email protected] using the ‘send as’ in Gmail) the mail never arrives.
There is no undeliverable, no error, nothing in spam, it just vanishes.
Because I get no feedback at all I’m having a hard time figuring out what is causing this.
Any idea where to look?
Forgot to mention. When I send mails to my wife or kids who use the same configuration all mails arrive, so it’s just a problem when sending to myself.
Google handles email sent to yourself using one of your own aliases differently than email from others.
See the following Google article for more details:
Messages sent to email alias or Group aren’t in my inbox
So basically everything is working as intended then?
Although, the article you link to says " To get these messages in your inbox, set up the alias or Group as an alternate “Send mail as” address for your account."
That is how I have it configured already:
So normally they should be arriving in the Inbox then if I understood correctly?
Solved. When ‘Treat as alias’ is checked when configuring the ‘Send As’ it works as expected.
I would have expected it to work the other way around.
This is really a question for Google and not Cloudflare, Gmai de-duplicates your emails and will not show an email to yourself in the inbox. If it is working when sending from other addresses then Cloudflare is working as expected.
You are correct. But I didn’t know Google did that. Before, when I was still using Google Workspace mails sent to myself would just arrive in my Inbox. So I wasn’t sure what was causing it.
Anyway, solution is in my previous post.
