 Email forwarding to Gmail


If your email address attract a lot of spam and it is all forwarded to Gmail, Gmail will "decide" that your email address is a spam source and block or delete messages. A better solution is to not forward but to let Gmail access your hosted email directly. It's not a simple process but Gmail provides guidance and there is a page in the Customer Solutions web site that addresses it.

We do not advise forwarding hosted email for that reason.

You can avoid the spam problem by:
1: using Alias emails and removing those that attract spam
2: use the Gmail or other service as the email contact for your web site.
3: avoid direct email links on your web site that can be "harvested" by online software
4: do not "unsubscribe" to sources you did not subscribe to because you are identifying your email as "active" to the sender, and therefore "valuable" enough to be sold to others.
