Learn how to create an email address in Plesk
In this article, we’re explaining how you can add an email address in Plesk. We’ll also show you how you can add an alias to an email address, but that’s completely optional. An email alias is simply a forwarding email address. The term alias expansion is sometimes used to indicate a specific mode of email forwarding.
Step 1: Log into Plesk
First, go to your client area and log in with your credentials.
My Dashboard and click on
Webhosting. Click on the right Web hosting plan.
If you click on
Login Details, you will see your login credentials.
Click on the URL above to log in.
Step 2: Creating an email address
At the left side panel, click on
Create Email Address.
Choose the email address you want via
Email Address. If you want to be able to log into Plesk with this email, check the checkbox. The
External Email Address is the email address that will be used to recover the password if you lose access to the primary email address. In the field
Password insert your password. Next, leave the Mailbox checkbox selected. Clearing this checkbox makes sense only if you want to use this address as a mail forwarder, which will forward all incoming mail to another address. Specify the mailbox size or use the default size defined by the provider’s policy.
The description in Plesk is visible to anyone that has access to the email address, but you can also leave this field empty. Click
OK to continue.
If you have successfully added an email address, a green bar will appear at the top.
Step 3: Adding Email Aliases (optional)
Open the email you want to add an alias to.
Navigate to the
Email Aliases tab and click on it.
Now insert the Email Alias you want to use. You can click on
Add Email Alias to add more aliases at the same time. When you’re done click on
Apply to apply the changes.
Congratulations, you have successfully added an email address in Plesk with an (optional) alias.
