Yola Mail: Different passwords for different aliases

Hi there,

I've been through the forum but haven't found an answer to this. More than a question is a confirmation of the way I think this works.

I have purchased a mailbox and I've chosen a username and password: Is the password going to be the same for every alias I create or can set a different password for each alias?

- In the settings you can create a name (not the username). Can I have a different name for each alias? I guess I can't, but if I set up the mail with for example Outlook, then I could, couldn't I?

Thanks
Kind regards,
Jose

I have set up all the aliases for Outlook and I have different names for each alias.
But now I have an issue.

I'd like that the emails sent to each alias arrive in different folders in Outlook (I had done that before with other accounts). I have the folders, I went to settings and I have given a folder to each alias. Yet, all emails that they sent me (regardless of which alias is the recipient) arrive to the folder and the main alias (or however you have to call that, primary email address? main addresss?).

Is there anyway to fix that?

Thank you!
Jose

There should be I think Jose. have you tried establishing a rule or rules in MS Outlook. This can check the address line and you can then make rules for placing it in specific folders.

Open rules and start a new rule
Select Check messages when they arrive.
next>
Check with specifc words in the recipient's address. Click on the blue underlined "specifcc words" and type the alias name into the first box. Add.
OK. Next>
Move it to the specified folder. Click on the specified folder and make sure you add that specific folder to your Inbox. Next>
Next> (again)

Now run the rules but makes sure the rules are set to run from your root Inbox and not another sub-folder otherwise it will miss the new emails coming in.
Enable the rule and it should be OK. There's a fair bit of stuff to do here so often something is overlooked but you just have to persist and make sure everything is accurate and complete.

That was very quick!. I expected you to have some problems because of the description I gave and the almost inevitable oversights. I am very pleased that you got it working.
