A redirection is an alternative email address for one or multiple email accounts of the same domain. For example, you can create the alias, which will redirect the email to the personal email account

This allows you to have multiple email addresses without needing to have multiple email accounts. It is also possible to deliver the email to multiple recipients. This means, for our example, we can get the email sent to “contact” delivered to the email accounts “firstname.lastname” and also to “firstname2.lastname2”.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Dedibox account logged into the console
  • Created a Webhosting Classic
  1. Click Hosting, then click Manage next to your webhosting.

  2. Scroll down to E-mail accounts, then click E-mail redirections.

  3. Click Add e-mail redirection.

  4. Enter the required information for the alias (the name of the redirection and the recipient) to create the redirection. This may take up to one hour.

  5. Once the redirection is activated, the yellow dot next to your alias will turn green.


    To add more than one recipient to a redirection, repeat the steps above for each recipient.
