ultimate free webmail solution

Are you looking for an ultimate webmail solution?

If you are struggling with setting up email and are looking for a Google Workspace subscription, then I recommend you to use Cloudflare and the free service of Gmail instead.

You will be able to receive your webmail and send it from the webmail using your Gmail account and the feature of Cloudflare routing.

Cloudflare is a free CDN service provider. Before you configure your webmail, it is very important that you use it as your CDN for your website.

As soon as you activate your website on Cloudflare, I recommend you to go to the Email tab (*Beta currently). Then, request the Email Routing feature from there.

It can take some time to get approval for the Email Routing feature. I had to wait for several months to get this feature. They are rolling out the service quickly for more users, so I hope you can get this feature enabled soon.

After this is enabled, you will receive an email regarding it. It will say that the “Email Routing” has been enabled for you.

You can then set up the email routing easily for your webmail.

I have made a video regarding this.

Benefits of using the Cloudflare

You can create as many webmails as you want using the Cloudflare Email Routing feature.

The best thing about using the Cloudflare email routing is, you won’t miss any emails and there also will not be any delay in receiving the emails.

The emails will instantly show up in your favorite inbox (Gmail/Hotmail/other).

On top of that, the CDN service provided by Cloudflare runs on clean energy. You will also be contributing to the lesser carbon footprint to the atmosphere using Cloudflare.

Issues setting up the Cloudflare Email Routing

There are some chances of you running into some issues. Setting up routing to receive in the inbox is fairly simple.

But, if you run into the issue with sending the email, then please try enabling the SSL on your domain for the webmail.

There is an option of generating the SSL on almost all the cPanels/DirectAdmin Control Panels for free.

Please, feel free to put your issues in the comments. I’ll be happy to help you out.

      Hi Lorena,

      Where have you hosted your website?
      You have to create a webmail on the cPanel of your host.

      That is where you can create a password as well.

      While setting up on Gmail, are you using the same password as the one that you created it on while creating the webmail?

      If you don’t have the same password, it will give you that error. Also for sending the email, the webmail must be created on your host.

      I would recommend you to set it up on cloudflare first. Please share the issues if you face any, so that I can help you investigate more.
