ImprovMX vs Cloudflare Email Routing

We've compared our service with Cloudflare Email Routing, another player in the arena. While both of us offer free plans, our history, features and unparalleled customer support make the choice clear.

Email forwarding is our core.
We’ve done this for 10+ years.

ImprovMX stepped into the email forwarding space in 2013. Over a decade later, we’re proud to have over 100,000 users, including some of the world’s foremost enterprises.

While Cloudflare Email Routing only graduated from Beta at the end of 2022, our expertise and proven track record speak volumes about our reliability and commitment to excellence.

Focused expertise vs divided attention

Cloudflare provides a wide array of services, with email routing being a mere fragment of their vast product portfolio.

In contrast, at ImprovMX, we are dedicated exclusively to email forwarding – we live it, we refine it, and we perfect it. It’s not an afterthought or a gimmick for us; it’s our specialty.

When you choose ImprovMX, you’re not just getting a service. You’re gaining a partner as committed to your email needs as you are.

Four reasons customers choose ImprovMX
over Cloudflare Email routing

Plug and play
With ImprovMX, you bypass the need for manual recipient verification, a hiccup you may encounter with Cloudflare Email Routing.

No DNS limitations
Flexibility is our promise, and we deliver. With ImprovMX, your domain isn’t tied down to any specific DNS provider, an issue you might face with Cloudflare Email Routing.

Resilient email delivery
Every email you send is important. We dispatch your emails using different IPs, and even if an IP reputation issue arises, we don’t stop and retry up to 5 times.

Advanced email forwarding
With ImprovMX, the advanced becomes accessible. Our email forwarding is packed with features such as RegEx, plus sign subaddressing, subdomain support, variable logging levels and the ability to forward to multiple recipients.
