Back in November Hotmail came up with a new feature of managing multiple email accounts and today Hotmail added a new email Alias feature. This feature will help you to create, read, reply to mulitple email from single inbox that is no need to log-in to all the email accounts.
The good part about the new alias feature is that now you can create a totally different email address that you can use to recieve emails into your primary account and others won’t even come to know about the your primary email ID. This is very handy feature because many of us prefer to use different email addresses for personal and professional use and don’t want to reveal it with others. You can create up to 5 aliases per year.
Here is how the new Alias feature works:
- Login to your Hotmail account and go to this URL: http://mail.live.com/?rru=createalias
- Enter the Email Id and Hotmail also provide you option to select from Hotmail.com, Hotmail.co.in or live.com.Now click on “Create Alias”.
- After clicking “Done” you will recieve a confirmation mail from Hotmail.
- Now you can start using Alias feature.
This feature is avialable in Gmail since long but then also its good that Hotmail trying to provide useful features to its users. It’s good to be late than never. I am a hardcore Gmail lover and even with this new Alias feature I don’t think that I will start using Hotmail. But if you are a Hotmail user then let us know that this Alias feature is useful for you or not?
