Cybersalad.net Hosting: Aliases Overview
An alias for practical purposes is an email address. Our hosting
customers choose how mail to an email address is routed. When we
say you have unlimited aliases we mean that you have unlimited email
addresses that you can route however you like.
When mail is sent to an email address at your domain you can choose
exactly what you want to do with it.
Mail sent to one of your email addresses it can be:
- processed through our user customizable anti-spam filter
- processed through customer defined filters
- forwarded to outside addresses
- routed to a local POP account to fetch
with your favorite mail client or our powerful webmail software
- use to trigger an auto-responder: a custom response to the
automatically sent to the sender of your incoming mail
Email sent to addresses that have no specific routing associated
with them can either be automatically rejected ( the sender will
be made aware ) or can be processed by a catchall rule. A catchall
rule processes all mail to addresses not specifically set to route
mail in any particular way. Mail caught by a catch-all can be
routed just like mail sent to a specific address.
Our mail manager makes this process extremely flexible and powerful
but amazingly simple. Advanced mail configurations can be made
with just a few clicks. For power users our mail manager makes
what would normally take hours of conf file editing and rule building
just minutes. For users with normal basic email needs our mail
manager takes seconds.
