This is the view that you are presented with upon signing into your account. The columns are defined as follows:

  • Click To Enable/Disable; This field allows you to disable the alias, or to enable it if it has already been disabled. The Alais status is represented as follows:
    • Green Check Mark: The alias is enabled and active. All emails sent to this email will be forwarded.
    • Yellow Check Mark: This alias may or may not receive email. The yellow indicates that at least one of the senders that have been forwarding to this alias has been disabled. You may receive an email from some of the senders, but not all. Check the sender list to determine any other actions
    • Red Stop Sign: No emails will be forwarded, for one of the following reasons
      • The alias has been disabled from the alias list
      • The Expiry date specified for this alias has been passed
      • The maximum number of aliases you set for it has been exceeded.



  • Alias. The alias address is displayed. Click on the heading to sort the table by Alias Address.
  • Clicking on this alias address itself will display a page with 2 tabs See below for tab descriptions
  • Last Usage: The date of the last activity for this alias
  • Expiration: The date, set by yourself at which time this alias is no longer valid.
  • Emails
    • Maximum Allowed: The maximum emails that will be forwarded to this Alias (set by yourself), after which time no more will be sent.
    • Forwarded: The number of emails actually forwarded to this alias
    • Blocked: The number of emails that were blocked and never forwarded
  • Domains
    • Max Allowed: The maximum number of domains that can send to this email (as set by yourself)
    • Active Domains: The number of domains that have sent to this email.

 

Above the Alias table are two additional buttons:

  • Create Alias, which is used to manually create an alias address. This function may be used in the following cases:
    • An alias needs to be created without following the Keys rule
    • An alias needs to be created with an expiry date or a maximum email quantity as part of the address. As an example, an alias can be automatically created with an expiry date by including it in the address such as abc.xyz.123119.domain.com. This will indicate that the alias is valid only up until Dec 31, 2019. THis will work fine, however, the date must now always be included when using this alias. An alternative would be to create a manual alias, leave the date out of the address, but enter one in the field identified for that purpose.
  • Search Alias Descriptors used to find any alias address with a given Alias Descriptor or part of a descriptor. Enter ONLY the descriptor portion, NOT the entire address. Example, if all Aliases with a descriptor red were required, enter “red” in the search field, resulting in the alias below (highlighted)
  • abc.redwagon.domain.com
  • abc.ball.domain.com
  • abc.bigredbarn.domain.com
  • abc.basket.domain.com
  • abc.bigdog.domain.com

  • Description: Can be edited, allows you to enter a note for this alias, to remind you of its purpose.
  • Max Number Emails Allowed: Can be edited.  Any number from 1-9999+. Once the system determines that you have received this many emails for this Alias, it will automatically become inactive and no more emails will be sent to it.
  • Number of emails forwarded: System maintained statistic, not editable.
  • Number of Emails Blocked: System maintained statistic, not editable. Number of emails that were blocked by the system because of its forwarding rules.

  • Expiration Date: Sets a date after which this alias will be disabled and all fourther emails will be blocked.. This can be changed at any time.
  • Enabled: A checkbox to enable or disable the alias. This is the same effect as the toggle on the alias list.

Alias Senders Tab

  • This presents a view of every sender (domain) that has forwarded to this Alias, along with statistical information.
  • You have the ability to disable the sender by toggling the enable column. Note, this will disable the sender for this alias only. The Alias itself will remain enabled if it has other senders.
