Making an email alias means setting up an e-mail address which shares the very same mailbox with a different e-mail address for both the inbound and the outbound emails. For instance, you are able to make an email address email@example.com and it will be connected to its very own mailbox. Next, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and will not use a mailbox of its own. Once you look at your e-mails, you will see emails sent to both of the two addresses in a single place, which can be more convenient in some instances because you will not need to log in and out of various mailboxes using webmail or configure many addresses inside an email app. This option is commonly used as an alternative to forwarding email messages from one address to a different one if a number of email addresses are mentioned for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up an alias for every email address is really easy if you have a shared web hosting plan with us. This can be done from the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to control the hosting accounts plus it takes only a few mouse clicks. You are able to add or delete tens of aliases at any moment and save time whenever you manage the e-mails for a number of emails which you use - for example, different business units inside a company or different sections of a web site. In case you get e-mails from many addresses in a single mailbox, but people should have a copy of specific e-mails, you'll be able to combine the aliases with email forwarding and/or mail filters, which can also be configured through Hepsia.
