 What's new this week:


Address Aliasing / Rewriting

We offer four types of address aliasing or rewriting in the incoming filter product.  With this update, we’ve brought configuration of two more into the web interface, so that you can manage these more easily.

Whole domain aliasing: this will rewrite any addresses at one domain to be the same address at another domain.  For example, mail to [email protected][email protected], and [email protected] will be changed to[email protected][email protected], and[email protected] if you set up as an alias  You can do this in the web interface in the “Domain Aliases” page.

Single address aliasing: this will rewrite a specific email address to be another address at the same domain.  For example, if you set up [email protected] to be an alias for[email protected], when mail arrives addressed to[email protected] it will be delivered to[email protected].  To use this, go to the new “Email address aliases” page in the web interface.

Catch-all aliasing: this will rewrite any address at a domain to one specific address at that domain.  For example, if you set this up for, to have mail go to[email protected], then mail to [email protected],[email protected], and [email protected] will all be delivered to [email protected].  To use this, go to the new “Email address aliases” page in the web interface and use “*” as the local part of the email address.

Cross-domain aliasing: this allows you to rewrite an address at one domain to an address at another domain.  For example, you might have [email protected] as an alias for [email protected], and any mail that arrives addressed to [email protected] would be delivered to[email protected].  This is not currently exposed via the web interface, but can be used directly from the API.

The daily/weekly protection reports will always be generated for the final delivery address, so any messages send to the aliases will automatically be included in the delivery address report. Therefore users that were receiving multiple protection reports as they had different addresses, can now easily combine those into one.
