Associated Emails VS Distribution List Differences

Many administrator confuse between Associated Emails and Distribution List (formerly known as Aliases). This page is an attempt to clarify this distinction.

Distribution List

Distribution List can be accessed by clicking Manage Distribution List under Server Configuration. Prior to build 5852 the same menu item was called Manage Aliases. Distribution List is a convenient way of expanding emails sent to a single address to multiple recipients. For example, you can create a Distribution List for hockey.practice@yourdomain.com and distribute emails sent to this address to

  • mike@yourdomain.com
  • bob@gmail.com
  • peter@hotmail.com


Notice how you can send emails to foreign addresses by using a Distribution List.
Every Distribution List will contribute to a user license when using the Enterprise Edition of Xeams.

Association

Associations are accessed through the User Management screen under Server Configuration. Administrator can associate one or more email addresses to a single user. For example:
  • mike.smith@yourdomain.com
  • msmith@yourdomain.com
  • michael.s@yourdomain.com
can be associated with a user named Michael Smith.
Xeams will count all of the associated addresses as one user when counting total users towards a license.
