Easy Mail - Plus (+) Address support ?

Google have recently announced that they are discontinuing their legacy (free) Workspaces accounts which they had grandfathered early adopters onto. One of the nice features that they support is the ability to do + addressing, where you can use your emailaddress+alias@domain.xxx to easily use aliases and have them delivered to your primary inbox without needing to add them first. I am weighing out my options as far as migrating to a new platform goes, so would like to know if this is something that is supported on EasyMail or not. Thanks

Hi there.

easyMAIL is available at easyDNS.com only ... and yes it will work with any email client.

Hi Sandy.. I realize that EasyMail is only available at easyDNS. The question was specific to the (+) addressing feature supported by some Mail Server Platforms, not the email client. I will contact EasyDNS.

Hi again, I have had time to investigate and that feature is not supported with easyMAIL at easyDNS.

regards.

EasyMail enables you to create true email aliases. A true alias, which is a different email address that directs to your primary address, is much superior to subaddressing a.k.a. plus sign (+) trick. A plus sign subaddress doesn't protect your primary address, so it's not a good choice if privacy is your goal. Plus sign subaddresses also aren't universally supported, so some mail systems will strip off the subaddress and use your primary address anyway.

At EasyMail you can create explicit aliases (which they call "mailmaps"). You can also enable a wildcard or "catch all" mailmap, enabling any address @yourdomain.com to forward to you. As these aliases/mailmaps appear to the outside world as normal addresses, they are fully supported by any mail system.
