Creating an email alias means creating an email address which shares the very same mailbox as a completely different e-mail address for both the inbound and the outgoing emails. For instance, you are able to make an email address email@example.com and it will be associated with its very own mailbox. Next, you can create an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, that can use the mailbox of sales@ and will not have a mailbox of its own. Every time you look at your emails, you will see messages sent to either one of the two addresses in one place, which might be more convenient in some instances since you will not need to sign in and out of different mailboxes using webmail or set up numerous addresses in an email program. This feature is usually used as an alternative to forwarding e-mails from one e-mail address to another one if numerous addresses are listed for contact on a site.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With every shared hosting package we provide, you are able to make tens or perhaps hundreds of aliases for just about any mailbox that you have created in the account. The process is really easy and you can create or erase aliases with just a couple of clicks from our in-house built Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This function will save you precious time because it is far more convenient to take care of the messages from different e-mail addresses that you use or which are listed on your website in a single place. Once you reply, the other side will get an e-mail from the alias, not from the original e-mail address associated with the mailbox. It is easy to combine this feature with email filters or e-mail forwarding should you need a copy of some kinds of emails in the original mailbox as well as in other separate mailboxes.
