Email

What is an email account?

Email is a network service that allows users to send and receive messages through an electronic communication network, such as the Internet. Email systems are based on a storage and forwarding model, so it is not really necessary that both ends are connected simultaneously. This is where the mail server comes in, which is responsible for intervening temporarily saving the messages before sending them to their recipients.

How does email work?

Currently, when sending and receiving messages, we can sequence the steps executed in this way:

The email is written with the help of a mail manager. When this message is sent, the program contacts the SMTP mail server, which stores the pending message to send.

The sending SMTP server must find to which server the message should be sent. To do this, For this it consults the destination server (technically, it consults the MX record of the domain) of the mail. Now, you can connect and transfer the message, which will be stored in the destination server thanks, also, to the SMTP protocol. The destination server will store the mail until the user deletes it.

Mail alias

An email alias is an email account that redirects all the messages it receives to any other account. An alias can have one or more recipients. The mail alias does not occupy space since it does not store the mail; it simply resends it to another/s.

Email lists

Email lists is a tool that allows you to send an email to multiple users simultaneously.

When you send a message to the address of the list, it will reach the address of all the email accounts registered in it. These lists are called Distribution Lists.

These lists should not be confused with White Lists or Black Lists, which allow you to ensure or block respectively the reception of emails.
