Mail :: Addresses Description
Anything you need to do with email addresses (or "mailboxes") at any of your domains hosted with DreamHost, you do here!

That includes creating new email addresses (forwarding-only or ones tied to a DreamHost mailbox), as well as changing or removing existing ones.

You can also change a mailbox password, disk usage limit, name, or inbox rotation settings from this panel!

Keep in mind that any DreamHost mailboxes you create have exactly one primary email address associated with them. If you'd like to have other email addresses also deliver to that DreamHost mailbox, just create them as forwarding addresses to that primary email address.

Don't worry, you can change the primary email address for a mailbox at any time just by clicking the "edit" link for it! And our system is nice and automatically updates any other addresses that forwarded to that mailbox for you!
