Email hosting and forwarding

Email is an important tool for communicating with customers and sending notifications. You can increase trust in your business by providing one or more store contact email addresses where customers can send questions about products or orders.

Email forwarding is a service that enables you to direct an email sent to one email address to a different email address. If you buy a domain through Shopify, or transfer your domain to Shopify, then you can set up an unlimited number of forwarding email addresses for free.

Email hosting is a service that enables you to send and receive email messages at a custom email address. Email hosting isn't provided on Shopify, but you can connect a third-party email hosting service to your custom domain.
