Domain name aliases

Overview

It is possible, in hMailServer 4.0 and later, to specify a list of alternate names for an hMailServer domain. Suppose you have the domains mydomain.com, mydomain.org and mydomain.net. You would like to host all of these on hMailServer, but do not want to add three separate domains. The solution is to add one single domain and then specify a list of valid names for that domain. However, every account will now have three aliases; if your account is johndoe@mydomain.com, you will also receive email sent to both johndoe@mydomain.org and johndoe@mydomain.net.

Example

  1. Start hMailAdmin.
  2. Expand the Domains node and select the domain (e.g. mydomain.com).
  3. Select the Names tab.
  4. Add the domain names to the list (e.g. mydomain.org and mydomain.net)

Notes

  • You should not add the primary name (in our example, mydomain.com) to the list.
