Edit Personal mailbox
An e-mail alias is an alternative e-mail address that points to an existing user account.
The user "firstname.lastname@example.org" wants to receive e-mails sent to "email@example.com" as well.
If you create "firstname.lastname@example.org" as an e-mail alias for "email@example.com", 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.
Sample address: firstname.lastname@example.org
