Would you like to have multiple email ids and manage all the associated communication without hassle or sharing your primary email address? Well, we have something interesting for you: an EMAIL ALIAS. You can create up to 30 email aliases in Google Workspace.
So what is an email alias? An email alias, also known as an alternate email, is a forwarding email address that allows you to keep your real name off the internet. Most aliases have a separate inbox to forward incoming emails to a primary email address. Email aliases have the same contacts and account settings as a primary email account. In a business setting, it could be a department title or a marketing campaign name. It also uses the same account settings and contacts as the account you consider primary.
Here are 5 amazing benefits of using aliases in Google Workspace
Privacy of your personal email:
Using an alias makes it easier for a freelancer or a startup to keep their professional and personal life separate by creating an alias account for work-related purposes while still receiving emails at your personal account. Using an alias lets you keep your personal email private while still getting work emails. It also protects your primary email address from receiving spam.
Temporary email address:
To ensure your professional and personal life remain separate, you might want to create an alias account specifically for company purposes while still receiving emails to your personal email account. Using an alias allows you to keep your personal email private while still receiving professional emails. This can be a good benefit for a freelancer or a startup.
Creating a memorable email address:
Choose an alias that makes it clear who will be receiving emails from that address. For example, if the email alias is for the support team, an alias that begins with [email protected] lets emailers know they’re messaging the right department.’
Email Aliases in Google Workspace also benefit employees filling multiple roles within a company:
An email alias is useful for an employee with multiple roles in an organization. All emails, despite the role to which they are sent, will be received at the employee’s primary email address. This clarifies the process of tracking emails received and ensures that all employees in multiple roles receive the emails.
If you have a longer email address that doesn’t fit easily on a business card or email signature, creating an alias allows you to reduce it while still receiving emails to your primary account. For example, shortening the email address “[email protected]” to “[email protected]” shortens it to fit business cards, email signatures, and mobile devices.
In conclusion, there are many benefits of using an email alias. By using an alias, businesses can save money, create a professional online presence, and use one primary email address for multiple roles. To get started, simply create an alias in Google Workspace.
