I purchased a webpage and it came with an email alias, which fowards to my home email account.
I have figured out how to set my account settings so that when I reply to an email sent to the alias, the person I am replying to will see that it is coming from the alias. Also, I have set the reply email address to the alias so that when they reply, they have to sent it to the alias.
This presents a problem in that when I send an email from my real account, it shows as coming from the alias, and the reply to is from the alias. So i created a second account and set it for my home email. Now I have the option to choose which address i want the email to come from.
1. Is there a way for the receipiant to know, when I use the alias, which address the email is really coming from??
2. When outlook sends and receives, i get an error about the alias account. Why?
3. Is there a better way to do this?
