Some notes on forwardemail.net

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/01

Some notes, as I’m looking to a stable, simple to maintain email forwarding system that is also secure and – yes – can cost money.

I need to leave IT-infrastructure behind that is easy to maintain for my heirs.

Some links:

  • [Archive.is] mausdompteur 💉 on Twitter: “Email! Yes, Email. Need to Set Email for a domain, basically forward only. Has anyone ever heard of https://t.co/v29TbMXrrl? Is it good? Any alternatives I should consider?”
  • [Wayback] The Best Free Email Forwarding Service for Custom Domains | Forward Email

    The best open-source and free email forwarding service for custom domains. We do not keep logs nor store emails. We don’t track you. Unlimited aliases, catch-alls, wildcards, API access, and disposable addresses. Built-in support for DKIM, SRS, SPF, ARC, DMARC, and more. No credit card required.

  • [Wayback] FAQ | Forward Email has a truckload of information, but the main points for me are these:

    What is the max email size limit

    We default to a 50MB size limit, which includes content, headers, and attachments. Note that services such as Gmail and Outlook allow only 25MB size limit, and if you exceed the limit when sending to addresses at those providers you will receive an error message.

    An error with the proper response code is returned if the file size limit is exceeded.

    What is the difference between Free and Enhanced Protection

    The Free plan requires you to use public DNS records to store your forwarding configuration. Anyone with a computer can lookup your forwarding configuration in a terminal if you are on the Free plan. Unlike the Free plan, the Enhanced Protection plan uses a cryptographically generated random string to store your forwarding configuration privately.

    Free Plan Enhanced Protection Plan

  • [Wayback] About | Forward Email with this very important point for me:

    Privacy

    We have a “zero tolerance policy” privacy policy, which states that we don’t store logs nor emails, and we don’t track users. Our statement clearly states that we do not collect nor store forwarded emails, metadata, server-side nor client-side logs, IP addresses, or browser information.

    Only an email address is required to create and configure the Enhanced Protection Plan, which hides DNS email alias information on the free plan through a managed and hosted service.

    User’s accounts, domains, and all related information can be permanently deleted at any time by the user.

  • [Wayback] Pricing | Forward Email (levels: free / enhanced protection / team / enterprise)

    Free email forwarding for domains with features including Custom Domain Email Forwarding, Disposable Addresses, Multiple Recipients, Wildcards, and more!

  • It’s open source too (written in JavaScript using Node.js), but running it requires you to keep up with versions and security: [Wayback/Archive.is] forwardemail/free-email-forwarding: The best free email forwarding for custom domains. Visit our website to get started (SMTP server)
