Creating an e-mail alias means making an e-mail address which shares the exact same mailbox with a different e-mail address both for the incoming as well as the outgoing emails. For example, you are able to make an email address firstname.lastname@example.org and it'll be associated with its very own mailbox. After that, you can make an alias email@example.com, that will make use of the mailbox of sales@ and will not use a mailbox of its own. If you look at your emails, you'll see emails sent to either one of the two addresses in one place, which can be more convenient in some circumstances as you will not have to sign in and out of numerous mailboxes working with webmail or create multiple addresses in an email application. This feature is usually used as a substitute for forwarding e-mails from one e-mail address to another one if multiple addresses are included for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Website Hosting
Setting up an alias for every mailbox will be quite simple for those who have a website hosting package with us. This can be done through the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to control the website hosting accounts and it will take just a couple of clicks. It is easy to create or delete tens of aliases at any time and save time when you control the e-mails for a number of emails that you use - for instance, various departments in a company or different areas of a web site. In case you receive emails from various addresses in one email address, but people must have a copy of particular emails, you can combine the aliases with e-mail forwarding and/or mail filters, which can be also configured with Hepsia.
