How Do I Create An Email Alias?


This article describes how to create an email alias for an existing mailbox.

An email alias is another name for your mailbox. They are useful when you want to collect emails for both your own name and also your roll. As an example, your mailbox may be bob@example.com, but you may also be your company's accounts person and want emails sent to accounts@example.com directed to you as well. Within reason, there is no limit to the number of email aliases you can create under your account. Be aware though that an address can not be an alias and a mail box at the same time, so you may need to remove an alias before you can create it as a mail box for use separately.
