  • Alias

An e-mail alias is an alternative e-mail address that points to an existing user account.

Example:

The user "m.mustermann@sample-institution.rwth-aachen.de" wants to receive e-mails sent to "m.musterfrau@rwth-aachen.de" as well.

If you create "m.musterfrau@rwth-aachen.de" as an e-mail alias for "m.mustermann@sample-institution.rwth-aachen.de", the e-mails of both accounts will be delivered to the same inbox.

Any number of aliases can be created for an existing e-mail address.

Please note:

Sample address: name1@institut.rwth-aachen.de

  • possible alias:
    • name2@institut.rwth-aachen.de
  • invalid alias:
    • name1@institut2.rwth-aachen.de
    • name1@name.de
