    Hello guys,

    I'm trying to set up a mail account so that I can receive and send replies from an alias. So at the moment, I can receive mail from an alias (through mail forwarder) though when I press reply, it sends it from my actual account I signed into rather than the alias account.

    For for example, if I set up john.smith@domain.com as my primary email, I want to also send and receive mail from the alias john@domain.com while logged into my john.smith@domain.com account.

    I'm not sure what this feature would be called, but Gmail has a similar feature called "Send mail as".

    Is this even possible with CPanel?

    Cheers for the help in advanced.

    hmm I can't seem to do this on any of the webmail access: horde, squirrelmail or roundcube. You're right, I've only ever achieved it using Outlook at work so I'll have to try it out on my site!

    Cheers,

    You CAN do it in roundcube. I know I've done it. Look under preferences for Identities. Create an Identity for each alias. Then when you want to send a message using an alias, just choose which one you want.

    I don't use the other webmail systems though so I can't say anything about them.
