Adding a User Alias

A user alias is an email address that forwards messages to a list of email addresses. Even though an alias acts as an email address, users cannot login to an alias like they do a standard email address since no email is ever actually stored for the alias. Emails are just sent to the list of addresses provided for the alias. For example, in a working environment with multiple email addresses, the office may want to make a central email address that distributes messages to all personnel. The alias can be made for messages to be sent and then distributed to all of the employees.

To begin adding a user alias, click on Add Alias from the Email Accounts page. After you fill out the fields on the page, click on Save to finish adding the alias.

Alias Name - Enter the name of the alias

Emails - Enter the full email addresses of the users to which this email should direct incoming mail.

Note: For more information on using the alias as a catch-all, see the topic Using a Catch-All.
