Hi to all,

I have a customer who has a new cPanel account created on my server and he would like to use his existing icloud email with his domain name (mydomain.com).

My question is do I achieve this by simply creating a forwarding rule?
In which case he would need an email account linked to his domain name (i.e. [email protected]) which will be forwarded to his icloud email address.

What about using MX Records with Remote Mail Exchanger?
How does this work and why would I use this method?

What is the difference between both options above?

Hello,

Using a private domain name with the iCloud email service is not natively supported. However, there is a third-party URL where a workaround is discussed:

A guide to using iCloud email with your own domain name

Though, it looks like it the workaround doesn't offer full functionality. I suggest forwarding the email to the iCloud address.

Thank you.
