HELP- How do I setup Email Forwarding?


Can anyone point me in the right direction with the following…Here’s the background…

I have a Click Funnels account that I recently opened. I purchased a domain through Click Funnels. I could not get the domain name to verify. After checking YouTube I saw numerous videos that said it is best NOT to get your domain through Click Funnels. Okay no problem. Namecheap came up many times so I purchased a URL through them.

I tried to get this new domain address to verify through Click funnels and it would not. Back to YouTube. I found a video that showed me how to get your domain (mine is to verify in Click Funnels. Based on the comments from the person in the video, this appears to be a common issue.

I followed the steps (which now introduced Cloud Flare into the picture) and much to my amazement it worked. My domain I added in Click Funnels is now secured. It doesn’t say Verified it says Secured. Whatever the difference is I don’t know but it looks like it passed.

My next step was to Integrate SendGrid into my funnel at Click Funnels which (of course) failed.

I realized I had not set up a valid email address so I went to Namecheap to set up Email Forwarding. I would like to have the email [email protected] forward to my AOL email.

I found out that because my davidvaccaromusic points to Cloudflare my option to set up Email Forwarding is no longer available. It’s only available with Namecheap’s paid email services. They said I had to set up my Email Forwarding via Cloudflare.

I could not find a video for this and I am not networking savvy enough to even know what questions to ask. I think once I get this setup with an email that works the SendGrid Intergration on ClickFunnels will work.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cloudflare does not process or host email. You need a mail server in your DNS records, just as you do with any other host. Just make sure your mail server records are not set to :orange:.

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ve not done any of that. No MX records etc. I will review the Tutorial and let you know.

Thanks so much.
