Mailbox Aliases with Xpressia Interface
Mailbox aliases are alternative addresses for existing mailboxes. This means, you can use aliases to receive e-mail and the messages will arrive to the primary e-mail box.
You would normally use these if you wanted one mailbox or mailbox owner to control multiple e-mail addresses centrally through one account login or connection. i.e. John Smith may also handle the "firstname.lastname@example.org" e-mail address. You would setup John's e-mail box with the alias of "info" so any e-mail to "info@" will be sent to his primary address. Another example may be in the case of JohnSmith@yourcompany.com being the primary e-mail address, but you would setup jSmith@, John_Smith@, JohnS@ aliases so if anyone sent an e-mail to any of these addresses, it would be received in John Smith's primary e-mail mailbox.
To Configure an e-mail alias:
1. Select the e-mail icon in the control panel
2. Select the Domain and then the NEW E-MAIL LINK:
3. Enter the e-mail alias name in the first box as if it were a new mailbox. The select the mailbox alias checkbox.
4. Select the mailbox you wish to associate the alias with in the MAIL ALIAS area the select submit.
You should now see the alias added as though it were a new mailbox, although it will have a different "ALIAS" icon beside the name. Once complete, test an e-mail to ensure it is working.
