Making an email alias means setting up an email that shares the very same mailbox with a different e-mail address for both the inbound as well as the outbound email messages. For instance, you’re able to create an e-mail address email@example.com and it'll be connected to its very own mailbox. Next, you can make an alias firstname.lastname@example.org, which can use the mailbox of sales@ and does not have a mailbox of its own. When you look at your emails, you will notice e-mails sent to both of the two addresses in one place, which may be more convenient in some instances since you will not have to sign in and out of numerous mailboxes using webmail or create multiple email addresses inside an email app. This feature can be used as an alternative to forwarding messages from one e-mail address to a different one if a number of addresses are listed for contact on a web site.
