Enable Email Routing

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account and domain.
  2. Go to Email > Email Routing.
  3. Review the records that will be added to your zone.
  4. Select Add records and enable.
  5. Go to Routing rules.
  6. For Custom addresses, select Create address.
  7. Enter the custom email address you want to use (for example, [email protected]).
  8. In Destination addresses, enter the full email address you want your emails to be forwarded to — for example, [email protected].
  1. Select Save.
  2. Cloudflare will send a verification email to the address provided in the Destination address field. You must verify your email address before being able to proceed.
  3. In the verification email Cloudflare sent you, select Verify email address > Go to Email Routing to activate Email Routing.
  4. Your Destination address should now show Verified, under Status. Select Continue.
  5. Cloudflare needs to add the relevant MX and TXT records to DNS records for Email Routing to work. This step is automatic and is only needed the first time you configure Email Routing. It is meant to ensure you have the proper records configured in your zone. Select Add records and finish.

Email Routing is now enabled. You can add other custom addresses to your account.
