Create an email alias
This guide explains how to create variants of your usual email address without having to add a new address to your subscription.
How an alias works
It is entirely possible to create alternative versions of your email addresses by modifying what comes before the @.
For example, email@example.com a long address and can be shortened to be used as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org (in this case, you need to create a "jps" alias for the "john-peter.smith” address).
If a person writes to email@example.com, their message will be delivered to the inbox of the main address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If a person writes to email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org as a copy (CC), their message will be delivered to the inbox of the main address (email@example.com) twice.
The number of aliases per email address is limited to 50.
