I've had my own .co.nz domain for about 14 years but recently decided to change registrar.
My old registrar allowed me to forward any/all email addresses at my domain to a single external address as part of my standard annual domain fee.
Over the years I've used lots of unique addresses  @mydomain.co.nz on various websites as a simple way to keep track of which names end up passed on to spammers. 
Most of the new registrars I've looked at so far seem to only allow forwarding a single address at my domain to an external address.

Anyone recommend a reliable registrar that allows forwarding of all email address at a domain as part of their standard domain service?

Webdrive/Domains4Less/Controlpanel does let you do forwarding, have run into issues in the past with forwarded messages being marked as spam though because of the forwarding method not playing well with SPF.

Only have had one DNS issue with them about 4/5 years ago and been rock solid since then.

Another vote for NOT forwarding mail in this fashion due to SPF, which will be broken; if you forward to an email host that enforces SPF, you will lose a lot of email.

Better to find someone who can host your email in a single account, and hit it with POP3 or IMAP as you need.

If you havn't looked at FreeParking I do recommend them (with a small bias in that they're part of the company I work for). If you want to ask them specific questions, their support staff are pretty sharp.

Unsure how the domain registrar is involved here. Just point the email records at your email provider and configure them to accept any email for the domain. I've done that with standard linux email hosting through cpanel and also through my current email provider, fastmail.fm.

Thanks for the responses guys.
I had already switched to freeparking on someone elses advice. That's off to a bad start with no response to a support ticket yet after 24 hrs. I guess they are busy with the .nz rollout.
I hadn't previously really considered using a separate email hosting company since the basic email fowarding included with my previous registrar did the job but I guess that's one of the reasons why they were so expensive.
Time to consider a wider range of options.
Thanks again for the advice.

Rob, if you have a case that requires chasing up, feel free to PM me any details you can. I can tell you they have been horrendously busy dealing with the changes to .nz, but that's no excuse if you're stuck waiting.

Thanks for the offer. I signed up for a 60 day trial with Fastmail, set up my MX records and a catch-all alias so my emails are no longer bouncing and I've got more time to properly plan what I'm doing this time :)
