USER ea_aliasname.gif:
Aliases are used when someone would like to have mulitple e-mail addresses at the same domain name, and all of the mail for these accounts sent to the same e-mail address.

For example, johnsmith@yourdomain.com might also want to have mail sent to john@yourdomain.com and johnny@yourdomain.com. Instead of setting up multiple mail accounts for John Smith that he would have to check separately, you can simply set up the mail account johnsmith@yourdomain.com and have an alias as john and johnny.

In this way, John Smith will only have to check his johnsmith@yourdomain.com mail, and he will also receive mail for john@yourdomain.com and johnny@yourdomain.com.

Each mail account can have an unlimited amount of aliases.

VACATION/AUTO-RESPONDER MESSAGE:
Vacation or Auto-Responder messages can be created and made active by clicking on the box beside Activate Vacation Message.

Type the message into the textbox, and when active, all e-mail messages that have been sent to this mail account will automatically be replied to with the message provided.

MAIL FORWARDING:
This option is used if you would like to redirect e-mail from a mail account existing on your domain to a mail account residing on your domain or another domain.

For example, all e-mail going to johnsmith@yourdomain.com can be redirected to john@otheraddress.com and johnnys@popmail.com simultaneously.

Set Reply-To to Group: If this option is selected the reply-to address will be the e-mail address for the group rather than for the sender of the message. This means that upon receiving the message, list members will be replying back to the entire member list rather than the person who sent the message to the group (recommended).
