How do I create a referral e-mail address?

To create your own e-mail address, you do not necessarily need your own mailbox with Register.eu . You can create an e-mail address at which you have the e-mails forwarded to an existing e-mail address. This is called an e-mail alias.

Create e-mail address with referral to another, existing e-mail address

Create an e-mail address without having a mailbox with Register.eu thanks to an e-mail alias. The mails then arrive in another existing mailbox.

Follow these steps in the control panel:

  1. Go to “My products”> “E-mail hosting”> Click on “Manage” next to the domain name for which you want to set up an e-mail forward.
  2. Select “Aliases” in the menu on the left.
  3. Enter the data as follows to create your e-mail address (alias) (see image):
    • Alias : Enter your desired e-mail address.
    • Destination : Enter one or more e-mail addresses to which you want to send the e-mails from your new e-mail address.
  4. Confirm and your e-mail address (alias) is active.
    Add aliases
    Enter your desired e-mail address (alias) and destination (s)

     

Set e-mail address/forward if you use Exchange

With Exchange, creating an e-mail alias is slightly different.

Follow these steps in the control panel:

  1. Go to “My products”> “E-mail hosting”> Click on “Manage” next to the domain for which you want to set up an e-mail forward.
  2. Select “Contacts” in the menu on the left.
  3. Create a new contact. Enter the details and check that you want to create an alias for this contact.
    You then have the option of creating an email address that will be forwarded to the external email address (see image).

    • External e-mail address : Enter the e-mail address to which you want to send the e-mails from your new e-mail address.
    • Destination : Enter your desired e-mail address here.
  4. Add the contact and your e-mail address (alias) is active.
