How to create an e-mail alias

What is an e-mail alias? Let’s say that you have an e-mail, john@yourdomain.com and you would like to have jdoe@ and johndoe@, too, and you want everything to go to one box (john@yourdomain.com). That is an example of having two e-mail alias’ under one account.

Here is how to accomplish this:

  1. Log into your e-mail panel (click here if you do not know how).
  2. Click on the mail account that you would like to add the alias to.
  3. Click “Email Alias”
  4. Enter the name of the alias you would like, such as: jdoe@
  5. You can add as many e-mail alias’ as you would like by pressing “Add email alias”
  6. Click “Okay” when you’re finished.
