Setup email forwarding or an email box


Q: How do I setup email forwarding or an email box through the SimpleUpdates email service?

A: SimpleUpdates offers with all accounts one free email forward. This would allow your email forms from the website to be delivered to any email address you prefer. Sites can also subscribe to our higher level package plans which come with email box provisions. Or a entry level site can subscribe to additional forwards or email boxes for a small annual fee for each box.

  • email forwards: $0.50 each/month (billed annually)
  • imap email boxes: $1.00 each/month (billed annually)
