Creating Email Accounts
The number of mailboxes you can create depends on which service plan you have purchased. Extra mailboxes can always be purchased as additional resources. Navigate to the Account tab and click Buy Additional Resources to check how many mailboxes you have available and purchase more if necessary. See the link below for step-by-step instructions to create a new email account from within the Customer Control Panel.
Creating Email Aliases
An email alias is an email address that forwards to one of your existing email accounts. It enables you to receive mail that is sent to multiple email addresses. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org could set up an alias at email@example.com so that emails sent to the common mis-spelling of his name would be forwarded to his inbox. See the link below for step-by-step instructions to create a new email alias.
