    I'm somewhat new to all this. How or why does someone need redirection accounts? For instance, would I set up a redirection account if I didn't want to use the Webmail system, but rather my own gmail or aol account?

    Hi Don,

    our redirection addresses are simple forwarders that you can set up in case you don't need an account with its own storage space. That might be because you need an address customers or visitors can contact you with but you don't need it to send emails with, or because you only want to have one email account all emails should flow into. (Nothing more annoying than checking dozens of different accounts for new mails...)

    As an example:

    You've created a business website selling goods. Now you need an account to manage all your in- and outgoing emails and you choose info@domain.com. However, there are lots of different things to sort, for example incoming orders and invoices. Since you just need the address and nothing else you could install sales@domain.com as a forwarder to info@domain.com.

    All the best,
