Blocking e-mail forwarders to external accounts

Hosting accounts as well as Managed VPS have limited ability to create e-mail forwarders.
You can only create a forwarder if the recipient is an email account within your own cPanel.

To solve this problem, we recommend that you use the “Import” function of Gmail or “Synchronize” of Outlook. Here we explain how to do it.

The reason for applying this restriction is to limit the amount of SPAM that is sent from our servers. Forwarders include all mail, including SPAM that you receive and for Gmail or Hotmail, that SPAM comes from our server.

Import emails into Gmail

1- Access the Gmail settings
Ajustes Gmail

2- Select the option: Check email from other accounts> Add an email account

Anadir Cuenta

3- Enter the email account you want to import

4- Select import via POP3

Finally, enter the connection data, it is important that:
  • The username is the full email account
  • The connection must be SSL
  • The port must be 995
Alternatively, we recommend you check the box to leave a copy of the messages on the server (in case you want to be able to read them in our webmail in the future)
