Does this work with a regular gmail address or do I have to have a workspace account? It does work with a regular Gmail address, on any other including G-suite or workspace account. The only condition being destination/recipient/control e-mail id should be outside of Mutant Mail system, that can even be G-suite on a subdomain. During the Setup process it’s asking me to input a “real email address” that will be used as my forwarding address. Is this address changeable? Yes, it’s changeable. All you need to do is, add another email id in the “Recipient Inbox” tab and verify it. Then go to settings and mark it as default. After that, you can delete the old email id in the “Recipient Inbox” tab. The only condition is, none of the email ids should be used on any other Mutant Mail account.
Your Domains – Domains or custom domains come with various extension (.com, .net, .org etc) that are attached to your account on Mutant Mail and used to create aliases. You need to own a domain name to attach it to MutantMail. Domain names can be easily purchased from domain registrars such as namecheap, godaddy or hostinger. Monthly Bandwidth – It’s the amount of data that’s allowed to be transmitted per month. On Mutant Mail bandwidth is incremented each time an email is forwarded or a reply is sent (this is the data). Mutant Mail reset the bandwidth on 1st of every month. When an alias is deactivated or deleted emails sent to it do not count towards your bandwidth.

If I use a GPG/OpenPGP key, that’s at the account level, correct? So every email I receive will be encrypted. Will every email I *send* be encrypted, and is there anything special the recipient needs to do to open them? We allow GPG/PGP at a finer level, and it’s set at the individual recipient email id level. Yes, once you set it from “Recipient Inbox”, emails are encrypted only on forward flow and a client like thunderbird will be needed to handle decryption automatically. Your clients don’t need anything for that, as we don’t encrypt that flow yet.
