1 For­ward emails

Open Mail in and click the cog icon at the bot­tom-left cor­ner. Se­lect Pref­er­ences from the pop-up menu to see your op­tions. In For­ward­ing, click the first check­box and en­ter an email ad­dress. This will for­ward emails sent to your email to wher­ever you spec­ify. You can delete for­warded mes­sages by tick­ing the sec­ond check­box.


Cre­ate email aliases

Aliases are sec­ondary email ad­dresses that shield your main ac­count from spam. You can use an alias for on­line shop­ping and other web ac­tiv­i­ties, and it can be dis­abled when you don’t need it. In Ac­counts, click ‘Add an alias’, add your alias, and, op­tion­ally, a la­bel and la­bel colour. Click OK. If the alias is not avail­able, pick one that is.


Man­age email aliases

In the Ac­counts sec­tion of Mail’s pref­er­ences, aliases are listed in the left side­bar. You can have up to three aliases at once. To man­age one, se­lect it; you can then up­date the la­bel and la­bel colour, and the as­so­ci­ated name. If the alias isn’t in use, you can dis­able it by tick­ing its check­box. If you de­cide you no longer want it at all, click Delete to re­move it.


Cre­ate server-side rules

In the Rules sec­tion of Mail’s pref­er­ences, you can de­fine rules to au­to­mat­i­cally or­gan­ise your email. Click ‘Add a Rule’, and use the pop-up menu to se­lect a con­di­tion and ac­tion; click Done to con­firm. In the Rules list, the ‘i’ but­ton en­ables you to up­date or delete the rule. If you’re go­ing away, click the Va­ca­tion tab in­stead and set an auto-re­ply.
