mailgun forward incoming mail

Mailgun is email service provider. For detail infomration about mailgun you can visit its site mailgun.com. Untill my last project( blogger-editor.xyz) i was just using mailgun sending mails. There was no need to receive emails on that domain.

But in blogger-editor.xyz, I need to have a domain based email address on which i should send and receive email. Its quite straight forward setup to receive email through mailgun.

Just you have to do these two things :
  1. Make sure your mx record points to mailgun. [ It should be ticked verfied on mailgun dns verification ]
  2. Setup route on mailgun

MX Record setup with Domain Registrar


In domain verification and Dns section of mailgun you will find that you have to setup two mx record with your domain service provider.

  1. mxb.mailgun.org ( priority 10 )
  2. mxb.mailgun.org ( priority 10 )


During creation of mx record you will be asked for host. Host value for your record is the @ if you are using root domain with mailgun , and it will be subdomain value if you are using subdomain with mailgun like mg.samplesite.com

create mx record with appropriate host [ i have used mg subdomain so have used mg as host (godday is my registrar)]
create mx record with appropriate host [ i have used mg subdomain so have used mg as host (godday is my registrar)]

Make sure your mx records are verified by maingun. It should be right inside green circle. Other wise some thing is wrong with your mx record.

What mailgun says about routes is " Mailgun Routes filter messages and trigger defined actions based on those filters. "

Mailgun does not provide faciltity like inbox where you can directly see mails you have received. But they provieds an api for fetching emails. They also provied facility to forward email.

Here you have two option
  1. Use api and create your own inbox app which will read mails from mailgun storage
  2. Use mailguns routes forward faciltity and forward that mail to your email address ( abc@gmail.com etc .. .)
