Find out more about Email Aliases - what they are, what is their function and how to make one.
Making an email alias means creating an e-mail address that shares the same mailbox as a different e-mail address for both the inbound and the outbound email messages. For example, you are able to create an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and it'll be connected to a unique mailbox. Then, you can make an alias email@example.com, that will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and does not have a mailbox of its own. If you check your e-mails, you will notice e-mails sent to both of the two addresses in one place, which might be far more convenient in some circumstances as you will not have to log in and out of various email addresses using webmail or create various email addresses in an email application. This option is normally used as a replacement for forwarding email messages from one address to another if a number of addresses are included for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up an alias for every mailbox will be quite simple for people with a shared web hosting plan with us. This can be done in the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage the web hosting accounts and it takes just a couple of mouse clicks. You can create or delete many aliases at any moment and save precious time whenever you take care of the e-mails for a number of email addresses which you use - for instance, numerous departments inside a corporation or numerous areas of a site. If you receive messages from multiple email addresses in one mailbox, but different people should have a copy of certain messages, it is possible to combine the aliases with e-mail forwarding and/or email filters, which can be also set up through Hepsia.
