Knowledge Base > FAQ's > How do I create an alias?
By Lucy Meier on 2017-10-09

Apostrophy Service users can create one or more aliases for their email. The alias needs to be available (e.g. not already in use by another user), and the fully qualified name needs to be within a domain available to the user and hosted in the Apostrophy Service infrastructure. This means that john.doe@aphy.io can make the alias  jd@aphy.io or john.doe@aphy.io Рbut not john.doe@example.com (the domain aphy.io is available on the Apostrophy Service infrastructure, but example.com is not).


To create a new alias John logs in to the Control Panel. He selects MyAccount, enters the desired alias in the Email aliases field and saves the account information by clicking Submit. the alias is now active, and messages to the alias will end up in John’s INBOX.

When John wants to send mail from his new alias, he logs in to the Web Client and goes to Settings -> Identities.

He enters a new identity with the new alias as the email address, and fills out any other information that he wants to use with the new identity. He also decides which identity he will as the default identity.


When composing a new email, John can now select which identity he wants to use as sender of the mail.
