Learn more about Email Aliases - what they are, what is their function and how to create one.
Creating an email alias means setting up an e-mail address which shares the exact same mailbox as a totally different address both for the incoming and the outgoing e-mail messages. For instance, you are able to make an address firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be linked to its very own mailbox. After that, you can create an alias email@example.com, that will use the mailbox of sales@ and won't have a mailbox of its own. If you check your e-mails, you will see e-mail messages sent to both of the two email addresses in a single place, which can be more convenient in some circumstances because you will not have to log in and out of different email addresses working with webmail or configure many addresses inside an email program. This feature is often used as a substitute for forwarding messages from a single e-mail address to a different one if numerous addresses are mentioned for contact on a site.
