Send-as Alias

Follow

Contents

Set up the ability for users to send messages with another one of their owned/controlled email addresses or aliases listed as the sender, instead of their primary email address.

Step 1: Setup Send-As

Choose to:

  1. Enter the name that you'd like to appear in the "from" field for this user
  2. Enter the email address that you'd like to appear as the origination address for emails sent by this user
  3. Enter a Reply To:, the address that will be included as the reply-to address in email sent using the alias
  4. Optional: make this alias the default Send-As address

Step 2: Select People

Add Users, Groups, or Org Units that this send-as alias will be applied to.

Step 3: Review and Apply

Check your settings and Apply Now

Note: If you receive an error here, it signifies that information you entered in the fields in step 1 are not verified domains, or valid names/addresses. The email address that you'd like to designate as a send-as alias must already exist on your domain in some form. (Primary address, email alias, group, etc.)

Important

Examples

Change the domain in the email address

Use Case: A university wants to differentiate the domain name of their alumni. Current students should continue sending/receiving mail as "username@school.edu" but alumni had their addresses change to "username@alumni.school.edu". To make these changes:

  • only change the email address domain name
  • Important: You must enter a sub-domain that you have owned and verified or you will receive an error at step 3.

Change usernames to a group username

Use Case: If a company has Spanish speaking members of the Sales Team and would like these users to be able to send emails from an aggregate email address "sales-SP". In this case:

  • Fill in a valid group (or username) while leaving the domain unchanged
  • Important: You must enter a valid group or username or you will receive an error at step 3.
