    I've been trying to get this working for 2 days straight now. Have asked everywhere. The forums on my hosting and on Reddit. So figured I'd try here as a last resort to see if someone could please help me get this working.

    I'm going to just copy/paste what I've got written on Reddit:


    I want to set up my domain name for email. I'm a complete noob when it comes to anything webmaster/webdesign related but I'm good with computers and if I don't know anything thankfully there's Google and YouTube.
    I've been following this guide where they show you how to make an email out of your domain and how to set it up to receive those emails to your Gmail account(forwarding)

    It's not rocket science to follow it.. so I'm not sure why it's not working for me.
    I did the very first step and made my email address as you can see here

    The next step you just go to email forwarders. Enter your email and then the email you want forward the email to(Gmail)
    Well, I can't get it to work and here is the image of the error and what I am entering

    If you know what you are doing it shouldn't take maybe a few minutes to figure out. Sadly I don't have many bits to give as I just got into BitCoin a week ago and don't even have $1 worth but I'll send you .15c (USD) worth over to you for being so kind and helping a noobie out. If I get more down the road I'll be more than happy to send more your way.

    Thanks in advance.

    edit: Not sure it matters but I registered the domain through NameCheap a year or so ago and I do have it set up on hosting but the hosting is free and so so. 2FreeHosting.com is the hosting site. Funds are limited so I wanted to get the feel for things and practice with free hosting before I take the leap into paid hosting.

    Here for 3 years, got over 200 posts, and cant set up a mail forwarder?

    Anyway, it appears like you can read english, so why dont you just do what the error says?
    Delete the e-mail, and then re-try to set up a forwarder....

    No need to be a fucking smartass. Webdesign is not my expertise. This is my first time trying out hosting. I followed that guide like it said step by step and it isn't working. I also tried deleting it and it did work after that but still can't get it to work through Gmail.

    You can't use this with gmail because you'd have to pay for their services... they used to offer this for free, but now you'd have to pay if you want to use gmail with your email address. I would suggest using apple mail (if on mac) or outlook (using windows).

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
