Hello,

I have several alias' set up for my main e-mail.

How can I configure to send from one of the alias users at the Network Solutions E-Mail.

I can do this from MS Outlook but cant seem to be able to do it from the Network Solutions Site.

Thanks,

RRRaney

The nsMail aliases are just aliases and can only receive. I recommend setting them up as individual mailboxes and you can forward or POP the messages to receive in one place.

I can do it just fine with MS Outlook or Outlook Express.
I can send or receive from main e-mail or any of the alias e-mail.

I thought it would be nice to be able to use them when I am not at home.

I will continue to use MS outlook to send and receive.

Maybe Network Solutions should think about this.

Thanks,

If your mail client is sending from an unauthenticated, non-existent mailbox (which it would be if it does not have SMTP auth on our servers, which aliases do not) then you are doing what is called Spoofing. You are faking the from address, but not actually sending from it. We do not encourage spoofing.

Hello and Howdy,

I understand your concerns with Spoofing and do not condone any malicious use of the internet, however, I do not believe that what I am doing should be classified as Spoofing.

I have established an E-Mail (Bob@mydomain.ext) and an Alias (Rob@mydomain.ext); I have chosen this convoluted strategy because some people call me Bob while others call me Rob.

I own both the E-Mail and the Alias.

If I am allowed to receive mail addressed to both Bob@mydomain.ext and Rob@mydomain.ext, why should I not be allowed to send mail from both Bob@mydomain.ext and Rob@mydomain.ext?

Rob may have other thoughts on this than I, though we doubt that.

Have a nice day (’dā),

Bob and Rob
or
Rob and Bob
whatever….

I would like to know how to remove the alias and then set up a new separate mailbox which can both send and receive. Many thanks

Log into Networksolutions.com and go to the mailbox details page by clicking on the mailboxes name in the list of mailboxes. Go down to the alias section and remove. Wait 1 hour and then create the new mailbox. This will prevent a conflict while the alias is being removed from the server.
