QuestionAnswer
How do I define filters/rules?

A detailed description is available here.

What is an alias?An alias address (or pseudonym, nickname, etc.) is most often used to surf, chat etc. on the Internet to hide your real identity or to define a role like webmaster@swissmail.org. Messages sent to such aliases will automatically be forwarded to the mailbox they belong to, i.e. to the primary address. For this reason, an alias address cannot really be treated as a separate mailbox.
What is the difference between Alias and Sender-Addresses?With a Standard or Professional Account, Alias addresses can be defined. These are additional swissmail.org email addresses, but belong to the same account and are freely selectable. Messages sent to such aliases will automatically be forwarded to the mailbox they belong to, i.e. to the primary address.

With a Standard or Professional Account additional Sender addresses which do not belong to swissmail.org can be defined. You have to be the owner of those email addresses as they only are active when the owner confirms them (a confirmation link will be sent to the owner). The sender addresses can only be used as a sender.
How do I define an "out of office", a “vacation” or other autoreplies?

Please go to our webMail app. Under Settings you can define Out of Office messages.

Can I change my email address?The email address itself cannot be changed. You can use alias addresses for having different email addresses.
How do I cancel my swissmail.org account?60 days before the yearly fee is due an invoice is automatically sent to your email address. If the invoice isn't paid the account will automatically be deleted when the account expires.
