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.
You can use your @ud.me email address to set up a new account with one of our email app partners. Today, we’re introducing our first email app integration with Skiff, allowing you to use your @ud.me email address to send, receive, and reply to messages on an end-to-end encrypted, privacy-first platform.
If you create an account with Skiff using your ud.me email address, you’ll be able to send end-to-end encrypted, secure messages, in addition to receiving and responding to messages. Skiff also gives you the option to enable end-to-end encrypted, decentralized storage on IPFS in your account via the settings tab.
You'll be prompted to complete the Skiff setup flow from your domain profile to use this feature. If you elect to use this option, messages will not route to your personal email but rather to your Skiff account. Once your Skiff account is enabled, your ud.me email address will be the default option to compose and send end-to-end encrypted emails. You can view a full video on this process here.
