How to Create an Email Alias in – Guiding Tech




, the all-new email service from Microsoft the other day, I mentioned how the service would be replacing Microsoft’s both Hotmail and Live email services. We have already shared tricks like how to

convert your old Hotmail and Live email address to a band new

email address,

import Gmail and social media contacts

and lot more.

One feature I loved about that I didn’t find in Gmail is the ability to use different email aliases to monitor a single email account. This feature comes in very handy when I want my email address to look professional in front of my business associates, and at the same time I want it to look funky when I am emailing my friends. And all this while I don’t need to switch between different email accounts.

In I can easily have multiple email aliases pointing to a single primary email address.

So let’s see how we can create and use an email alias in Outlook.

Creating Multiple Alias

Step 1: Open and sign in using your email address.

Step 2: When you are in your inbox, click on the gear icon near the username on the top-right corner and click on the option More mail settings.

Step 4: will now ask you to choose an email alias. You can take up any email address as long as it’s available.

Once you select a new email alias, it will get activated instantly. You can create as many numbers of email aliases as you want. All the email aliases you create will be depicted as a folder in your email interface and all the incoming mails will be sorted accordingly.


Switching email services is a challenging task but has made it a bit easy by providing these wonderful options. If you have just heard about don’t forget to read our in-depth review article on it to get a quick understanding of the service.
