What is an Alias email address?
An email alias is an alternate address that points to a user's existing email mailbox. This allows you to have multiple email addresses which all get forwarded in to your primary mailbox. For example;
Your primary email address may be email@example.com.
An alias would allow you so set up an firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc. and allow all emails sent to these addresses to end up in your primary (firstname.lastname@example.org) inbox.
