Hi. I have my forum set up with my own domain name and all is well with this but is there any way to have people email me at my domain name ex: me@mydomainname.com, and have those emails forwarded to my email on file with createaforum? I want to be able to supply an @mydomainname email address to someone. Is there a way to do this via Create A Forum? My domain registrar tells me I can only use email forwarding feature through them if they host my domain name.


Thanks.

Can be done. A litte more complicated. You would need to control your own dns.
Use a DNS A record and point it to the ip of createaforum.com

Then setup mx records to handle mail for your email
