Although you can recieve mail to your "firstname.lastname@example.org" account,
it is advisable to setup aliases to the account so you can have a more
user friendly email address. Aliases can be up to 25 characters long and
contain any combination of letters, numbers, hypens, underscores, and periods
(ie: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
Setting Up Aliases
To have an alias setup on your account, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and make sure to specify which Castanet account you would like the alias
setup on and what alias you would like. Once I set it up we will send a
test message to that alias to confirm it is operational.
