    edit container

    edit screen showing options
  3. If you choose the add button, a screen displays giving you options to enter information.

    create new aliases option screen

    Alias — the part of the email address before the @domains. Since each container may have multiple domains associated, the alias will work for all those domains.

    Maildrop — the forwarding destination address. Each alias may have up to 3 maildrops. The maildrops must be fully qualified (i.e., or will work; foo or foo@chemistry will not). Incorrectly formatted email addresses will be discarded, as the backend will parse only correct addresses.

    Owner — SUNet ID of the owner of the alias. This is optional: there is no validation other than basic syntax validation.

    Description — brief note about the alias (optional).

  4. A confirmation screen displays, showing the information you have entered, and giving you options to further edit.
