I have my own domain that I use only for redirecting e-mails to my Gmail. I'm looking for a cheap service that would allow me to do that.

Currently, I'm using GSuite, but the price of 6,5EUR seems a bit high for such a service. Are there any other reliable and cheap services that will allow me to do that?

  • Last time I did it, it was yet free. But it was not today, about in 2011. Unfortunately, gmail & co practically killed the cheap email providers -> what they don't do, you can't do easily. Hopefully you can find one still existing. (It was not an answer, only a comment.) – peterh - Reinstate Monica Jul 6 at 21:42
  • @peterh-ReinstateMonica yes, I know it was free some time ago. Unfortunately, I didn't register it back then. – Djent Jul 7 at 5:05
  • Btw, doing that professionally would require 1 linux sysadm. I estimate he would need to work with it about 4 hours per month. Counting with a $50/hour total cost of employment (very cheap, it would work only in developing countries), adding the cost of the server (can be a low-cost VPS), it would worth its price from about 50 customers like you. The service won't be very HQ (underpaid sysadms are not on the top). The chance of a small company to get 50 customers for this task is close to zero. Another problem is that this would run independently from the google -> they could consider your – peterh - Reinstate Monica Jul 7 at 7:29

Here is another alternative - Zoho Mail. It can do catch all and forwarding.

All the pricing plans are lower than your current subscription of 6,5EUR. (Note: They also have a free plan, but it does not support forwarding.)

  • Zoho looks really great. They seem reliable and really cheap. I have trouble determining which plan I need to have. It seems like catch-all is available in free plan, and forwarding is paid feature? – Djent Jul 14 at 4:51
  • Forwarding is not available in the free plan based on the help link above. I suggest you chat or contact them to clarify to verify. – kenchew Jul 14 at 7:41

There are domain registrar that provide the email catch all and forwarding service that is included in the domain registration fee or as an add on fee.

I assume you are now paying domain name registration fee (yearly) + GSuite fee (monthly). So it might lower your cost if you transfer your domain to such registrar. (Assuming you can/want to do that.)

If you provide your top-level domain (ie .com, .net, .eu, .de, ... etc), I may be able to suggest such a registrar.

[Update]

Came across this solution for .pl domain.

Gandi provide .pl domain and comes with "unlimited aliases and forwarding addresses". The .pl price is €20 per year. So it would come down to what you are paying for your domain now.

  • I've asked my registrar some time ago, but they don't provide such feature if I don't buy hosting there. I have .pl domain. – Djent Jul 14 at 4:52
  • Sorry, I’m not aware of any for .pl – kenchew Jul 14 at 5:27
  • @Djent came across a registrar for .pl with mail redirect. – kenchew Sep 2 at 1:21

Here is yet another way. Use AWS SES to receive incoming email and to forward it. This AWS blog post describe how exactly it can be setup.

Depending on your email volume, it probably cost lower than what you are paying. Given that the services involved - SES, S3, Lambda and network traffic all have free tier. (The end of the above blog post also give some cost estimates)

This method will require some knowledge to setup or someone can help you do that.

  • That sounds like it can be easily broken by misconfiguration. I need a reliable service as I use the catch-all e-mails everywhere. – Djent Jul 14 at 4:53
