Why Email Routing?

Area 1 email security

Individual users: Create custom addresses to use for your different needs, so that you're not sharing your private email with every newsletter and business.

Families: If you have a domain for your family, or want to create one through Cloudflare Registrar, you can then create custom addresses for each family member or for specific purposes such as a custom address for your household bills.

Businesses: Businesses want to have different email addresses for different types of inquiries, such as sales and support, but often find it cumbersome to control who receives these emails. And as the business evolves, matters that were handled by the owner often need to be handed off to other people. But configuring mailboxes and aliases quickly becomes complicated.

Email Routing from Cloudflare is the most straightforward way to create any number of email addresses that are redirected to the mailbox you, your family, or your team are already using.
