Creating an e-mail alias means creating an email address which shares the exact same mailbox with a completely different e-mail address both for the incoming as well as the outbound messages. For example, you can create an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be associated with its own mailbox. After that, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, that will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and won't use a mailbox of its own. Once you look at your e-mails, you will notice e-mail messages sent to both of the two email addresses in a single place, which can be more convenient in some cases since you will not have to log in and out of various email addresses working with webmail or configure numerous email addresses inside an email application. This feature is commonly used as an alternative choice to forwarding email messages from a single e-mail address to another one if multiple addresses are listed for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Hosting
With each hosting package we offer, you are able to create tens and even hundreds of aliases for every mailbox which you have made in the account. The procedure is very easy and you could create or remove aliases with just a couple of clicks from our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature will save you time because it will likely be more convenient to take care of the emails from various email addresses which you use or that can be on your website in a single place. Once you reply, the other side will receive an email from the alias, not from the primary e-mail address associated with the mailbox. You are able to combine this feature with mail filters or e-mail forwarding should you prefer a backup of some kinds of emails in the main mailbox and in other independent email addresses.
