Making an e-mail alias means setting up an e-mail that shares the same mailbox as a different address for both the incoming as well as the outgoing emails. For instance, you’re able to create an email address email@example.com and it'll be linked to its very own mailbox. Then, you can create an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, that can use the mailbox of sales@ and won't have a mailbox of its own. When you look at your e-mails, you'll see emails sent to either one of the two addresses in one place, which might be far more convenient in some instances because you will not have to log in and out of different email addresses using webmail or create multiple email addresses inside an email program. This feature is usually used as a replacement for forwarding e-mails from a single address to a new one if a number of addresses are listed for contact on a web site.
E-mail Aliases in Cloud Hosting
With every single cloud hosting package we provide, you will be able to make tens and even hundreds of aliases for any mailbox that you have made in the account. The process is quite simple and you can add or remove aliases with only a few clicks from our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature can save you time since it is more convenient to handle the messages from various email addresses which you use or that can be listed on your site in a single place. Any time you answer back, the other side will receive an email from the alias, not coming from the main e-mail address linked to the mailbox. You can combine this feature with mail filters or e-mail forwarding should you prefer a backup of some kinds of e-mails both in the primary mailbox and in other separate email addresses.
