As a benefit to members, APS can provide each active member with an email alias to be used for forwarding email to a personal email (target) account. An email alias is made up of a name field and a domain (in this case, email@example.com).
The APS address is not an email account; messages are not stored by APS, but rather passed through to an email account specified by the member. This allows a member to permanently maintain an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org, for as long as the individual remains a member of APS.
The target account of the email alias can be changed at any time, allowing the member to switch email providers, employers or account names without needing to notify contacts of a new email address.
Email aliases may be set up in the Member Services area of the website.
