Aliases are additional mailbox addresses. Aliases with an alternative username are added manually by the admin, and aliases with an alternative domain appear automatically when you link an alias domain. Adding an alias doesn't mean the employee receives a new mailbox.

How mailbox aliases work for employees
- Employees can log in to Yandex Mail using either their primary login or an additional alias login.
- To set up a mail client or mail importer for an alias, the employee has to enter their main password.
- When sending an email, the employee who has aliases set up for them can select a mailbox nameto be displayed in the From field. By default, emails are sent from the main address.
- Emails sent to an additional address are delivered to the main mailbox. For example, suppose you linked the domains
example.com. Now emails sent to
email@example.com end up in the same mailbox on the primary domain.
Alias with an alternative username
Aliases with an alternative username are added manually by the company admin. You can assign up to 10 additional usernames to a single mailbox hosted on your domain. For example, you can assign the
advertising@ alias to an employee who manages advertising. After that, emails sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org will be delivered to this employee's mailbox.
Each alias can be associated with only one employee. To write to several employees at once, add them to a department or group and set the mailing address. The mailing address can be specified when creating or editing departments or groups.
Alias with an alternative domain
Aliases with an alternative domain appear automatically when you link an alias domain. For example, employees with accounts like
email@example.com receive an additional email address on the alias domain
firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional addresses are linked to a mailbox on the primary domain.
