# Stop wasting your domain name, Cloudflare + Gmail + Resend, get a free enterprise email in ten minutes

Nowadays, independent developers usually have numerous domain names, but not everyone has an enterprise email.

Here, I will share with you my personal solution for creating a completely free enterprise email: "Cloudflare + Gmail + Resend".

First, let's talk about the advantages of an enterprise email:

  • For users, an enterprise email appears more professional and trustworthy.
  • By using the catch-all feature, it is equivalent to having countless email addresses, which makes it convenient for us to register various services.

Notes:

  • If you only need to send and receive emails, without involving mass mailing and other operations, then this solution can be considered a very simple and cost-free choice.

# 0. Prerequisites

You have a domain name and the DNS of the domain is managed by Cloudflare. (Of course, any other service with email routing functionality can also be used, but here we only introduce Cloudflare)

Note: Gmail has a trick that you can add "+source" after your account, for example, I wrote "auv1107+cleanclip@gmail", and all emails will still be sent to [email protected]. This is very convenient if you have multiple domain names, as you can filter emails in Gmail based on this field.

🎉🎉🎉 Alright, the receiving of emails is done here. You can try sending an email to any account under your domain name.

# 2. Get the Resend API Key
