Email Aliases (Forwarding) Description
Email aliases are addresses that actually just instantaneously route any messages sent to them to another address. Every DreamHost hosting plan includes unlimited email aliases that forward like this.

With this you can keep checking email sent to your hosted domain through whatever email account you already have set up.

Please note that when you add or change aliases it can take 1-2 hours for them to go live on our servers!
