Create an Email Forwarding Rule

Click the above link to view a video on how to add an Email Forwarder.  This is the best way to use a free email service like Google's Gmail or YaHoo mail to name a couple of many, but still have your email address be yourname@yourdomain.com.  You create a new email address at your web domain, but all mail coming into the email server for that address is instantly rerouted to any other email address you want.  So for example I could have a yahoo email account as homy22@yahoo.com, but my new web site domain is widgets.com and I want an email address of sales@widgets.com.  By making a forwarding rule, all mail going to sales@widges.com gets delivered into my homy22@yahoo.com mailbox.
