Email Accounts With Webflow Hosting

Currently with almost all other hosting providers, you can create custom email addresses (for example - which can be accessed via Webmail) free of charge as part of the hosting package. There isn't a need to purchase email hosting as it piggybacks off of the hosting server. I think it would be amazing to introduce this to webflow as it brings the whole web package together for clients. If a client (and designers) have to spend $100's+ on web creation/hosting, it would be nice to include email accounts! :)

    I love using Webflow, but I wasn't aware that the emails aren't part of the hosting package, I didn't know that was a thing. That's the one element I need for my clients. No email is a deal breaker for me. I got to be able to offer my clients multiple emails with the hosting package.

    Hosting with free email from some of the biggest providers is offered via cPanel, not in the same class at all with Webflow experience and too technical for clients. Premium and managed email is an additional charge, but actually possible for a client to access.

    It's best practice to keep domain separate from hosting, specifically for legal reasons. 

    The best way to handle this is to host with webflow, then set up MX records with an external domain to get the mail functionality. You can get managed email easily for 10/ year.

    Please have this available, I'm running into issues with clients who are questioning our WF's hosting because now we need to switch their emails and make them pay for emails. Not to mention backing up all their current emails.

    Moreover, this is the only reason I don't use the domain registration tool with Webflow admin panel. Then i lose my email options if I don't want to go with G-suite. If we could use email accounts with WF, that would solve that problem.
