How do I add an email alias?

The cPanel interface allows you to configure so called mail aliases. This is nothing but sending copies of incoming messages to another email address. This is useful, for example, if you want to use a single email address to check emails addressed to multiple accounts, or receive messages from a fictitious email address in your domain.

There are two types of email aliases in cPanel:

  • from a particular email address to another (email alias) - the source email address can exist as a regular mailbox (then a copy will be sent), but does not have to,
  • domain name (domain alias) - i.e. matching the same box names in one domain to another. If the appropriate mailbox in the domain to which the redirection has been set, such an email will be sent. Similarly as above, mailboxes in the redirected domain do not have to exist.

1. Log in to Your cPanel account.
