    Has anyone had any success forwarding all email from a domain (*@mydomain.com)? I can't seem to find an easy solution, I'd be grateful for any advice or links.

    Yes.
    It's quite easy with ImprovMx
    You change the MX fields of the domain in the dns and then set a catch-all email.

    Thanks Gube, I'm on their website now and will attempt to set this up, thank you for your help! If successful, I'll write a blog post about this because I searched and searched google, and couldn't find a *suitable* solution.

    Most registrars, providing you are using their DNS, have a way to create a catch all forwarding address.

    Are you using your registrars or a hosting companies DNS?

    Some offer this service, others don't
    OVH for exemple doesn't give the possibility to create catch-all emails
    In that case, ImprovMx is a good choice, It's free and easy to set up

    the 2 I'm currently using is GoDaddy and Dynadot - GoDaddy's is extremely difficult to configure, and Dynadot, is impossible to use - both work well if you have hosting, but for my for-sale DNs I don't have hosting.

    I do have a couple forwarded email address with dynadot. It's pretty easy.

    Go to ‘Manage Domains’, click the domain in question, look for ‘manage email settings’, then ‘Forwarding Email’

    Here is a screenshot:

    yes, that's what I thought to - then it threw error when I filled them out because the domains aren't on their DNS servers - so, (I changed nameservers to efty for landing pages) I was going to move them back to dynadot to make the change only to find out that's not possible - they won't let me move it back to them since I don't have any services through them. I'm going to reach out to their support when I have time, seems a little whack.

    Hrmm, that’s strange. If your domain is registered with dynadot, you should be able to use their DNS. To forward email and still use efty for a landing page, you’ll need to host the DNS somewhere that will allow you to forward email to one place and forward the domain somewhere else.

    At Epik.com you can setup FREE Email Forwarding (catch all) when using our DNS. Simple and quick setup. I see @Gube supplied a screenshot above. If you are interested you can reach me directly at [email protected].

    Jess,

    For all us Noobies why not make a thread of all Epik can do. I have most of my domains registrared at Dynadot, NameBrite and Godaddy. I have a few others at a handful of other registrars from ones I have been pushed from an auction on SNAP or NJ.

    But what I am most interested in the ability to use you guys for Domain Name Leasing to own options. Another fellow NP member explained to me how he as been significantly getting higher prices by using custom lander pages and offering people to buy outright or a monthly lease to own price. For the leased to own option he takes a set up fee via PayPal and then sets the arrangement up in Epik. During the setup process he then moves the domain to your service.

    It would be great if you had a video showing a leased to own domain is set on your system.

    I wouldn't bother setting up email for domains without developed sites. It will just be all a target for spam just publish the one email to sort as they still have to find a contact anyway.
