E-mail aliases or e-mail forwarders are e-mail addresses which forward all received e-mails to another existing e-mail address or mailbox. All Cloud Hosting accounts have unlimited e-mail aliases. This article presents step by step instructions on creating e-mail aliases for your domain.
- Log in to your cPanel control panel. Please view this article for instructions on how to log in to cPanel.
- Scroll down to the Email section and click on Forwarders.
- Click on Add Forwarder.
- Under Address To Forward, enter your desired e-mail address without the domain. Select the appropriate domain in the Domain box if you have more than one domain hosted on your account.
- To forward all received e-mails to another e-mail address, enter the full e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) under "Forward to Email Address". To discard all received e-mails, select "Discard and send an error to the sender" and optionally, enter a custom failure message. Click Add Forwarder and you're done.
You do not need to do anything in particular to set up your e-mail client to receive e-mails sent to e-mail aliases, as long as you have properly set up your e-mail client to access the mailbox that the alias forwards to.
