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. A 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)
