Making an e-mail alias means creating an e-mail which shares the same mailbox with a different address for both the inbound and the outbound e-mails. For example, you can make an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be associated with its very own mailbox. Then, you can make an alias email@example.com, which will use the mailbox of sales@ and will not have a mailbox of its own. Every time you check your email messages, you'll see e-mails sent to both of the two email addresses in a single place, which may be far more convenient in some cases as you will not have to sign in and out of numerous mailboxes working with webmail or set up various addresses in an email application. This feature is often used as a replacement for forwarding emails from a single e-mail address to another one if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Web Hosting
Creating an alias for every mailbox is really easy when you've got a web hosting plan from us. This can be done through the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel, used to manage the web hosting accounts and it takes only a couple of clicks. You can create or delete tens of aliases at any moment and save precious time when you manage the e-mails for a few emails that you use - for example, numerous departments in a company or separate areas of a website. If you receive e-mails from many addresses in just a single mailbox, but people needs to have a copy of specific e-mails, you are able to combine the aliases with email forwarding and/or email filters, which can be also configured with Hepsia.
