Gmailify.com

Anyone heard of this service? It seems very interesting. I saw it on reddit in a single thread and I didn't see others. https://www.gmailify.com/

No. Seems to be a forwarding service.

Does cause confusion.

Not Your Google's Gmailify
Gmail has an own feature named Gmailify. It serves a different purpose though, linking Outlook and Yahoo accounts with Gmail. We link Gmail with custom domains instead. The name conflict is coincidental.

Im just wondering if its reliable and if its safe to use since not much talk about it. I previously had problems with email forwarding services like cloudflare and improvmx to gmail. Gmail would block some emails silently.

Gmailify.com claim they address most of these problems:
They ARC sign forwarded messages so Google knows they're not the source.
They filter spam and email that looks a bit spammy is pulled into Gmail using POP3 instead of being forwarded to Gmail.
For outgoing mail they DKIM sign the messages.
So they don't just act as a simple "receive and resend" servuce like those offered by registrars and others.
One problem I see is that they use the name "Gmailify" that Google uses for a somewhat similar service. Also that they use the name Gmail inside their name for providing the same basic service offered by Gmail. SO if they become bigger Google might decide to stop them (legally).
