Mailboxes

 

Mail aliases are alternative addresses to existing mailboxes. They can be used receive e-mail, but the messages will arrive to the primary mailbox. There are two kinds of supported mail aliases:

  • mailbox name aliases
    - the mailbox and its alias share the same mail domain
    e.g. mailbox2@example.com will be an alternative address to mailbox1@example.com
  • mail domain aliases
    - the mailbox and its alias have different domain parts (i.e. mail domain and its alias) and the same mailbox names. For instance, example.net being a mail alias to example.com, every mailbox on example.com will have a counterpart on example.net, specifically mailbox@example.net will be an alternative mail address to mailbox@example.com.

    Mail domain aliases come with regular domain aliases only. You can't have a mail domain alias without a regular domain alias.

Depending on your plan configuration your control panel may allow one of these types, both or neither.
