Creating an alias

The aox create alias command creates an alias, that is, a valid local email address. This command gives another address to Nirmala:

aox add alias Nirmala.Devi@example.com nirmala@example.com

The addresses are entirely case-insensitive. Nirmala.Devi is the same as nirmala.devi. However, the addresses are used as you specify them in outgoing mail such as out-of-office autoreplies.

You can also specify an alias for any mailbox:

aox add alias sales@example.com /shared/sales

Mail to sales@example.com will be delivered into the /shared/sales mailbox (which you may need to create first, e.g. using aox add mailbox /shared/sales). If you also want to allow sending mail with sales@example.com as sender address, you can grant that rigth with aox setacl login +p.

In case of questions, please write to info@aox.org.
