How to configure an e-mail alias in Plesk

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

Plesk is no longer included with new A2 Hosting plans, but it is still available on legacy Managed WordPress accounts. You can install Plesk manually on unmanaged VPS and Dedicated servers.

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.
