Making an e-mail alias means making an e-mail which shares the exact same mailbox with a different address for both the inbound as well as the outgoing e-mail messages. For example, you can make an e-mail address email@example.com and it'll be associated with a unique mailbox. Then, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, that will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and will not use a mailbox of its own. If you look at your email messages, you will notice emails sent to both of the two addresses in a single place, which might be far more convenient in some cases since you will not need to log in and out of various email addresses working with webmail or create various addresses in an email application. This option is usually used as an alternative choice to forwarding email messages from a single address to a different one if a number of addresses are listed for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up an alias for every mailbox will be quite simple if you have a shared website hosting plan from us. You can do this from the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel, used to control the web hosting accounts and it will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks. You can add or delete many aliases whenever you want and save time when you take care of the emails for a number of emails that you use - for example, different business units in a corporation or numerous areas of a web site. In case you get messages from a lot of email addresses in just a single mailbox, but people should have a duplicate of certain e-mails, you're able to combine the aliases with mail forwarding and/or email filters, which can be set up with Hepsia.
