How to configure an e-mail alias in Plesk

This article describes how to configure e-mail aliases in Plesk.

E-mail aliases enable you to keep your e-mail address private. For example, if your main e-mail address is [email protected], you probably do not want to publish it on the internet and receive spam. Instead, you can create an alias (for example, [email protected]) and publish that address instead. When messages arrive for [email protected], you receive them in your [email protected] inbox.
