You can use your UD domains for private email communication by enabling email messaging for your domain, setting up a forwarding address, and sharing your new email address with the world. We call this Unstoppable email!
Disabled by Default
We value your privacy, so the Unstoppable email feature is disabled by default. If you want to use Unstoppable email, navigate to the email tab on your domain profile management page. Toggle the enable switch to turn the feature on/off at any time. You also have the functionality built-in to our UI to block emails from reaching you via your Unstoppable Email.
Your Contact Information Is Safe
Unstoppable email uses an email proxy service to exchange messages for your domain's @ud.me address. External users can contact you using email@example.com, and we forward the message to your email address. We also hide your email address if you respond to an Unstoppable email message to keep your identity safe.
Your private email address stays private. Messages will appear as firstname.lastname@example.org when you respond to an Unstoppable email.
You Can Use Your Standard Email Client
When an Unstoppable email is forwarded to your private email address, it will appear in your standard email client. Every message includes a footer with the name of your Unstoppable Domain and a link to block future messages from the sender.
Be careful that you may include your phone number, address, and other personal information in an email signature. We can hide your email address but cannot change the information contained in your message.
Please note we recommend 'Google Chrome' browser when setting ethermail for the first time. First, go to ethermail.io. Then, connect your wallet and sign the transaction.
You are now signed up to ethermail.io. You will be given an email address starting with your wallet address by default. Click 'Next'.
Here you can set privacy settings for both Web2 and Web3 providers, as well as provide some personal information (optional).
Now retrieve your keys by signing another transaction with your wallet.
Once logged in, click the icon in the top left and then the settings:
Click 'Aliases' and then 'Unstoppable Domains'. Then, click 'enable' next to the domain name you want to use as your Alias.
Once applied, your email address will be your domain name with ethermail.io on the end. In the example above, the email address would be email@example.com. You now send and receive emails to your ethermail address with your UD Domain as your alias.
