Creating an email alias means setting up an email address that shares the same mailbox as a completely different address for both the inbound as well as the outgoing e-mails. For example, you can make an email address sales@domain.com and it will be associated with a unique mailbox. Then, you can create an alias support@domain.com, that can use the mailbox of sales@ and will not have a mailbox of its own. Every time you look at your email messages, you'll see messages sent to both of the two addresses in one place, which might be far more convenient in some instances since you will not have to log in and out of various mailboxes working with webmail or set up various email addresses in an email application. This feature is frequently used as an alternative choice to forwarding messages from one e-mail address to a new one if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Website Hosting
With each and every website hosting package we offer, you are able to make tens and even hundreds of aliases for every mailbox that you have made in the account. The process is quite simple and you can create or delete aliases with a few mouse clicks via our in-house made Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This function can save you precious time considering that it is far easier to control the emails from various email addresses which you use or which are on your web site in a single place. Any time you reply, the other side will receive an e-mail from the alias, not coming from the original e-mail address associated with the mailbox. You can combine this option with mail filters or email forwarding if you want a backup of some kinds of e-mails in the primary mailbox and in other separate email addresses.
