Register your domain and redirect inbound messages


Prerequisites
  • Routing > Email > Manage permission

Notes:
  • This option is best suited if your existing email addresses do not use a subdomain; for example, Initech.com, or if you want to keep copies of all incoming messages on your mail server.
  • If emails forward to PureCloud from another mail server, enter that server’s email address in the Reply To field. This configuration restricts PureCloud from replying to the mail server and creating extra ACD email interactions.
  • To ensure PureCloud can reply to and send outbound emails on your behalf, you only need to add TXT records; MX records are not required for this process.

Register your domain with PureCloud for email routing handling, and redirect inbound messages to it. Use this method to keep a copy of all inbound email messages in your own email system by redirecting messages to your registered email domain.

    Follow your provider’s instructions for creating redirects from your email server.

    Example

    Your company’s name is Initech and you already have the email address support@Initech.com. If you want to continue using that email address, you can set up a redirect rule to send email from support@Initech.com to your PureCloud email domain, using an address like support@Initech.myPureCloud.com. In the PureCloud domain configuration:

    Set up the inbound email address record as:

    Option Example
    Email Address CustomerSupport@Initech.myPureCloud.com
    From Email Address support@initech.com

    Set up the outbound email address record as:

    Option Example
    Email Address support@initech.com
    From Name Customer Support

    In replies, customers see:

    From: Customer Support
    Reply To: support@Initech.com
