Making an email alias means setting up an email that shares the exact same mailbox as a totally different e-mail address for both the incoming and the outbound e-mail messages. For instance, you can make an e-mail address email@example.com and it will be linked to a unique mailbox. Next, you can create an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which will use the mailbox of sales@ and will not use a mailbox of its own. Once you check your emails, you will see emails sent to both of the two addresses in one place, which may be far more convenient in some cases as you will not have to log in and out of numerous mailboxes using webmail or set up multiple addresses in an email program. This option can be used as a substitute for forwarding e-mail messages from one address to a different one if multiple addresses are included for contact on a website.
E-mail Aliases in Shared Hosting
With every shared hosting package that we provide, it's possible to make tens or even hundreds of aliases for every mailbox that you have made in the account. The procedure is quite simple and you can add or remove aliases with just a couple of clicks with our in-house made Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. This feature will save you precious time because it will likely be far more convenient to handle the messages from various email addresses that you use or which are on your web site in a single place. Once you reply, the other side will get an email from the alias, not from the primary address linked to the mailbox. You can combine this option with mail filters or email forwarding if you want a backup of some kinds of emails in the main mailbox as well as in other separate email addresses.
