No Option to create an Alias email.

No Option to create an Alias email.

I've been searching everywhere on how to add an alias email, and every instruction says to go to the same place.

Settings > Accounts > Click Primary Adress > Click Create Extra Email

 

However, there is no option to create an extra email. Can you no longer do this? Has it been disabled? Is it an error?

Re: No Option to create an Alias email.

Alias can no longer be created. However you can use Disposable email address as a workaround.

The base name is permanent, but the trailing addresses can be changed.

Make sure you choose wisely, because base name can't be changed. I'm stuck with a silly base name myself, lol

@Sinlessrogue,

Alias no longer exists and cannot be created. If you currently have one created you can continue to use that alias. 

If you see any helpful posts, give a Kudo!
