Enter the email address prefix in the box provided, and select your chosen domain from the domains dropdown box. Then enter the addresses you wish your emails to be forwarded to. Then click either the Save and Exit or the Save and Add Another buttons.

Please note: To forward to more than one address, enter all the addresses you wish to forward to into the Forward to box. Ensure all the emails are seperated with a comma, but without a space. For example:

one@example.com,two@example.com,three@example.com

Your new email forwarding will be created.

Please note: You cannot set up email forwarding on an email address if it is attached to a mailbox.

Example: If you have a mailbox called my.name@mydomain.co.uk you cannot forward this email address to another email address i.e. myaddress@hotmail.com.

To have an email addresses going to both a mailbox and an alternative email address, you would need to set up a "dummy" mailbox with a different email address i.e. 123my.name@mydomain.co.uk.

You can then set up my.name@mydomain.co.uk to forward to 123my.name@mydomain.co.uk and myaddress@hotmail.com.
