    • Special option: Leave the address blank to receive all email for the chosen domain (excluding existing email addresses). Note that you will receive increased amounts of spam if you do this.
  6. Then, choose the addresses to which you want it to forward. You can choose internal addresses in the first box, and type external addresses in the second box. Hold down Control (Windows) or Command (Mac) to be able to click on multiple addresses.

    If you are creating an alias or forwarder that already has its own mailbox, you MUST make it forward to itself. Otherwise, messages will skip the original inbox and go only to the other email addresses on the list.

    Of course, if you do want mail to skip the original inbox, you don't need to select it.

    If desired, you can set up an auto-reply for this email alias.
    • Special option: Choose (trashcan/blackhole) to automatically delete mail that comes to this address.

Your new alias will now begin forwarding email as specified.
