E-Mail >> Emails ManagementHow to create Rules and how they work
Email delivery rules are used to assist you in managing your mail, and are based on the contents of the To, From, Sender, Subject, Message Header , and Message Body fields.
They help you to filter out spam and other messages that contain certain types of attachments, and can be used to direct specified mail into a specific mailbox. The IMail Web client applies the rules you create when messages arrive in your Inbox.
For example, all messages directed to you with the words "Awesome Medical Breakthrough" can be routed to your System Administrator, or to a folder named Spam.
It is possible to create, modify and delete rules from the Webmail (http://mail.domain.com) in the "Rules" section.

E-Mail >> Emails ManagementHow to setup an Alias
An email alias is an alternative for a user's email address or a group of user's email addresses.
An email alias looks like an email address, but it is a name defined within an email domain to represent a logon name. Therefore more than one email alias may refer to a POP3 account.
A standard alias is a name that indicates a single user ID on the same mail server. Mail is sent to:
- Up to four user IDs on the same system.
- Up to four remote mail addresses.
- Another alias.
- Any combination of the above
IMPORTANT: If you create a standard alias that includes more than four entries, the standard alias is converted to a group alias. We recommend that a group alias be used for less than 50 users. For over 50 users it is recommended that a list be set up instead.

Each domain has a 5 mailboxes 50 MB of space (in addition to your pre-set 'root' and alias' postmaster '), infinite aliases, infinite forwards, infinite mailing lists, vacation message and auto-reply.
The 'root' mailbox and 'postmaster' alias are automatically activated with the domain activation and can not be removed. The 'root' mailbox allow to manage all other mailboxes, and the default password is the same of the domain access: the mailbox is not included among those which can be created, therefore 6 accounts for every domain will result available. All emails addressed to 'postmaster' are redirected to the 'root' mailbox.
