I have been using an email alias in place of an original email address for each of my websites. In this way, all email comments and inquiries from each site go into my main email address “inbox”. I can tell by the email header address where the email was sent to. From there I can act on the email, – read, respond, forward, archive, delete, etc….very quickly, all from one inbox. Finally, in everyday use, I find the email alias itself, as a mechanism, to be rock solid.

Curious? Try it out, you might find, as I did, the email alias is a time saving tool.
