Sending an email from an alias email address

Categories Email HostingEmail Troubleshooting

An alias/forwarding email address is generally used to receive an email then forward it onto another address. When creating an alias/forwarding address, a target address must always be specified. Emails sent to the alias email address are then forwarded to the target email address.

The following steps detail how to make an email appear to be sent from an alias address rather than the actual Email account from which it has been sent.

Note: If the software you are using is not listed below, you may need to contact the vendor of your software for assistance.
