Continuing from Part 1 I had a change of heart…
I decided I really wanted my wild-card mail boxes (it’s a great way to manage spam) and I also noticed Cloudflare had launched their inbound mail relay service. The new plan is
- Inbound mail goes to Cloudflare who redirect it to whoever it’s for gmail account
- The gmail accounts are set up with an alias and a SMTP server (AWS SES) for gidley.co.uk to allow sending of emails from my domain
- Wildcards are resolved by cloudflare and set to a suitable mailbox
The email features of Cloudflare are in beta, but they seem pretty easy to get onto. While I was on I moved many of my domains over to Cloudflare as their DNS registrar is cheaper than most.
Once there it was a doddle to set up the relevant records. It’s important to set up DKIM/SPF records (cloudflare help) to ensure your outbound emails don’t get flagged as SPAM.
