Creating email forwarders for Hostinger Email

Updated over a week ago

If you are using Hostinger Email, you can create two different types of forwarders:

  • Internal forwarders - From one Hostinger Email account to another Hostinger Email account. For an internal forwarder to work properly, the MX records of both the origin and destination domains must point to Hostinger

  • External forwarders - From a Hostinger Email account to en external email service such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc. or to a domain that isn't hosted at Hostinger and is not pointing to Hostinger MX records.

If you wish to forward emails from your Hostinger Email account to a domain hosted at Hostinger that is using different MX records (eg. Google Workspace), you can do so by creating a filter using Webmail instead.

How to Create Email Forwarders

Navigate to the Emails section of hPanel and click on Manage next to the domain or subdomain. Next, select Forwarders on the left sidebar and click on Create a forwarder:
