Editing a Mail Alias

How to edit a mail alias or forwarder.

A mail alias simply forwards e-mail messages to a specific e-mail address. Mail aliases are often used for long or generic e-mail address likes sales@example.com or webmaster@example.com

A mail address has two parts: the alias address and the e-mail address to forward messages to.

To edit mail aliases, you will need to log into our Hosting Control Panel.

How To

Please Note: You cannot edit the alias address. To change an alias address, you will need to delete and then create a new alias.

  1. Log into the Hosting Control Panel.
  2. From the left-hand Account Menu, click on Spaces
  3. From the Hosting Spaces menu, click on the space that contains your website (most accounts will only have 1 space).
  4. From the left-hand Hosting Space Menu, float your mouse over the Mail option. A side menu will open, click on Mail Aliases.
  5. From the list of mail aliases, click on the mail alias you wish to edit.
  6. Enter the address to forward messages to in the Forwards to e-mail textbox. This address should be a valid e-mail address.
  7. Click on the Save button at the bottom of the form to save the changes to the mail alias

The changes to mail aliases will take immediate effect.
