  • it.support@acme.com
  • it.team@acme.com
  • it.help@acme.com

towards:

  • technician1@acme.com
  • technician2@acme.com

  1. Click on the entry or on the icon in administration section to join the 'Alias management' page.
  2. Now you can add a new Mailbox redirection via 'Actions –> Create –> Mail redirection' (or modify the existing ones):
