Sending email from an alias

Last Updated: October 13, 2020 aliases

This article guides you through the steps to send an email from an email alias on MutantMail. This allows you to initiate a conversation without first having to receive an email you can reply to.

An example of how it works

Send from alias construction

Let's say that you have the alias [email protected] and you want to send an email to [email protected].

All you need to do is enter the following in the To: field.

<[email protected]>

Note: you must send the email from a verified recipient on your account.

Then send the email exactly as you would any other. To check that the email has sent successfully, look in your dashboard at the sent count column and see if it has been incremented for that alias.

This works exactly the same for shared domain aliases, additional usernames and custom domains.

If you want an easy way to construct the correct email address that you should send to you can click "Send from" next to any alias in the web application and after entering the destination address it will display the right email address to use.

Send from alias modal

You can even use the send from feature to create an alias on the fly that does not yet exist. This only works for standard aliases or those at custom domains that behave as a catch-all.

You must generate aliases that use shared domains (e.g. [email protected]) beforehand in order to be able to send from them.

If you need to send an email to an address with an extension e.g. [email protected] then it's exactly the same method:

<[email protected]>

Just enter the extension too!
