  3. Click the WRENCH icon, or the word "Active", to the far right of the domain you wish to setup Email Forwarding, to Manage the domain.

  4. Click "Nameservers" on the LEFT menu.

You can proceed to setup your Email Forwarding by clicking "Email Forwarding" on the LEFT menu.  NOTE: If you do not see the Emai Forwarding option here, please contact us, so that we may fix this problem (known issue, easy to fix).

    2. If the nameservers show DNS Servers (for example,, etc.), this means that you probably host your email with's hosting service. You will need to log into your cPanel hosting control panel and click the icon called "Forwarders" to setup e-mail forwarding.
