Quick Reference

Sometimes a user of the Internet will have a number of email addresses. For example an academic may have an email address that uses their name, for example k.l.timms@open.ac.uk but at the same time have an address that refers to their function, for example DeanSociScience@open.ac.uk. An email address for someone who already has an address is known as an email alias.
