Do I need an MX Plan to redirect emails back?


The web interface says I have a “redirect” solution on my domain. The nameservers are pointed to an external service. I am able to get a redirect working from the domain email address to Gmail, however I am not able to get it to work the other way around. Namely, I cannot log in to add the domain email address in Gmail, using SMTP because of error “535 5.7.1 Authentication failed , code: 535”. Does this mean that I have to buy an MX Plan for Gmail to be able to send emails using the redirecting domain email address?


Hello @MarcinR2

That’s right if you want to send as, you will need at least one mx plan or any other e-mail offer,



Will I still be able to use nameservers pointed outside of OVH if I use this?
