Email forwarding for domain

Post by john john » Mon Jul 26, 2010 11:06 pm

For several years I've had a couple of domains hosted by Bottle Direct with a fairly simple to use interface for what I suspect is DNS hosting. In particular it included the ability to redirect a number of email addresses for each domain to any email address I choose. I'm looking to transfer my domain and email forwarding, hopefully to Exetel if the price and service is competitive.

I've looked around the website and forum, including the members facilities and this post viewtopic.php?f=230&t=24364, but am not really clear on what services I'd have to order to get Exetel to do this. I assume I'd have to transfer my domains to Exetel and order DNS hosting but I'm not clear on whether DNS hosting includes such email forwarding, how straight forward it is to manage and what are the limits on the number of addresses etc.

You don't need to transfer the domain registration to Exetel, unless you want to.

Either way, you'll need to order domain hosting, and email hosting (two seperate items). Once you have the email hosting setup, you can set up whatever email address you want, and set them to forward wherever you want.

Maybe he will have to transfer his domains elseware. Bottle was de-registered by auDA on Monday!
auDA terminates Australian Style Pty Ltd (t/a Bottle Domains) registrar accreditation
On 23 July 2010, the Court of Appeal of the Supreme Court of Victoria dismissed Bottle Domains’ appeal in proceedings against auDA.
Pursuant to the decision (available here), auDA has today terminated the registrar accreditation of Australian Style Pty Ltd trading as Bottle Domains, for a serious breach of its obligations under the Registrar Agreement.
In February 2009, auDA was notified by the Australian Federal Police that there had been a security incident which affected customers of Bottle Domains. Refer to auDA Announcement 10/02/09.
auDA subsequently discovered that Bottle Domains was the subject of an earlier security incident in April 2007, which auDA believes may have caused or contributed to the security incident in February 2009.
Bottle Domains failed to notify auDA at the time of the April 2007 security incident, which was a breach of its obligations under the Registrar Agreement. Bottle Domains also failed to take appropriate remedial security action and alert customers of the incident.
These failures led to auDA's decision to terminate Bottle Domains' registrar accreditation on 15 April 2009 , however the termination had been suspended pending the conclusion of legal proceedings.
Following Friday’s decision in its favour, auDA has today re-initiated the termination process. Approximately 8,900 domain names registered by Bottle Domains have been transferred to auDA, and the registrants of these names will be sent instructions on how to transfer to another auDA accredited registrar.
“The domain names of Bottle Domains’ customers are NOT at risk. auDA is in the process of contacting all those whose domain name is registered through Bottle Domains to provide them with all the information they need” said auDA CEO, Chris Disspain.
In its decision, the Court of Appeal recognised the importance of the system governing domain name allocation and use in Australia and that “protecting the system against unauthorised entry is therefore of paramount concern”.
The Court also endorsed the actions of auDA, and its CEO, Chris Disspain: “Given the importance of the .au domain name system as a public resource to be administered in the public interest, it is in my opinion appropriate that this Court say clearly that it endorses the approach taken by Mr Disspain.”
