How do I set up or manage the free Single Email Forwarding for my domain?
Posted by Maria Brosnan on 17 June 2016 10:25 AM

To access and set up the free Single Email Forwarding service for your domain name, go to the Login page on the Freeparking website and sign in. Go to the Services tab and click manage next to the domain you want to enable Single Email Forwarding for.  Click on the 'Service Management' tab and scroll down and click on the Request button in the Single Email Forwarding section.

This will allow you to enter an address @yourdomain.co.nz, and forward mail sent to this address to another address you own. Click save to finish.

NOTE: In order to access and use the free Single Email Forwarding service, the domain name must be using the Freeparking DNS servers (ns.freeparking.co.nz and ns2.freeparking.co.nz) and also be pointing to the Freeparking ‘parked domain’ IP Address (43.245.52.70). There must also be no MX record configured in the DNS records for the domain name. If you have just changed the name servers to Freeparking's name servers and / or just edited the 'A Records' for the Domain to point at our redirection IP address of 43.245.52.70, then you will need to allow for normal DNS propagation to complete. This can vary from as little as one hour to 48 hours.
