Email alias Alias is a virtual account associated to one or more existing accounts to which the messages received by the alias will be sent. E.g.: by creating the "sales" alias (see below) and associating it to the real email accounts firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com the messages sent to the alias firstname.lastname@example.org will be received by email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Email address - one or more email address(es) to which the email received will be redirected (instead of an email address you can use only a mailbox name of an existing mailbox under your domain; e.g. ‘director’ instead of ‘email@example.com’)
