How to forward email to remote providers from your domain

Forwarding emails out of your domain lately has been stubbed by many large providers such as Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo. This has to do with the new requirements around SPF using DKIM and DMARC records. Currently, if you attempt to setup a forwarder on your domain to one of these providers, depending on the configuration of the upstream sender, it may end in an error such as: 

550 5.7.1 Unauthenticated email from email is not accepted due to domain's DMARC policy. Please contact the administrator of domain if this was a legitimate mail. Please visit to learn about the DMARC initiative. i24si39961717edg.100 - gsmtp

To work around this issue, we recommend creating a normal mailbox for your forwarder on our system, then use the remote mail service to log into it and gather the emails.
