How to validate your inbox


When adding a new SMTP inbox via a forwarding connection, we ask you to validate that the redirect is working correctly. We will simply send an email to your public address and wait until it arrives in Front. This helps troubleshoot most of the setup issues.

While we encourage you to validate inboxes immediately after creating them, you can choose to do it at a later time by selecting Do this later. However, to prevent abuse, you won't be able to reply from your inbox until we can validate that you own the address.


Step 1

Go into your Settings, select Inboxes, and select appropriate Team Inbox.

Step 2

Scroll down to your Account Settings and copy your forwarding address.


Step 3

Below is a list from other popular providers that explains how to redirect your emails. Select your provider, and follow the instructions to redirect your emails to Front.

If you don't see your provider, please send an email to .

Step 4

Navigate back to Front and click Send email.


Step 5

You should receive a notification that your email address has been validated.
