Logging In

If you have been supplied with an administrative username and password, you can log in at https://mailbox.supranet.net/admin to access your domain's settings.

Adding Aliases

Aliases are pseudo-mailboxes that forward received mail to other addresses. A common example would be resumes@company.com going to the human resources director's mailbox.

  1. From the main menu, click "Add, delete and manage aliases, forwards and a Catchall."
  2. Click "Add Alias" from the navigation bar on the left. Field explanations:
    • Alias Name: The display name of the alias.
    • Address: The alias address that you want to create.
    • Forward To: The full address(es) of the recipient of the aliased account. If you specify multiple addresses, they must be separated by only a comma (no spaces).
    • Password: If you would like the alias to be able to log in, create and verify a password.
    • Admin: Check this if you would like the alias account to have administrative rights for your domain.
    • Enabled: Enable or disable the alias. Aliases that have been disabled cannot be accessed by users, and mail sent to them will be rejected by the server.
  3. Click the Submit button to create the new alias.

Deleting Aliases

  1. Click on "Add, delete and manage aliases, forwards and a Catchall." from the main menu.
  2. In the list of aliases, click the trash can icon next to the alias you wish to delete.
  3. Select "Delete someone@somewhere.com" and click the Continue button.

Adding a Catchall

A catchall is a sort of a dump mailbox. All mail that is received by a domain for nonexistent mailboxes will be funnelled into the catchall. You may only have one catchall per domain.

Note: when a catchall is configured, senders will not receive a bounced message reply when they send to addresses that don't exist.

  1. From the main menu, click "Add, delete and manage aliases, forwards and a Catchall."
  2. Click "Add Catchall" from the navigation bar on the left.
  3. Enter the full address of the account you'd like to receive the catchall mail.
  4. Click the Submit button to create the catchall.

Modifying Aliases

  1. From the main menu, click "Add, delete and manage aliases, forwards and a Catchall."
  2. Find the alias in the list of names you'd like to modify. Field explanations:
    • Alias Name: The display name of the alias.
    • Address: The alias address that you want to create.
    • Forward To: The full address(es) of the recipient of the aliased account. If you specify multiple addresses, they must be separated by only a comma (no spaces).
    • Password: If you would like the alias to be able to log in, create and verify a password.
    • Admin: Check this if you would like the alias account to have administrative rights for your domain.
    • Anti-virus: Check this box if you'd like messages passing through the alias to be scanned for viruses.
    • Spamassassin: Check this box if you'd like messages passing through the alias to be spam filtered.
    • Enabled: Enable or disable the alias. Aliases that have been disabled cannot be accessed by users, and mail sent to them will be rejected by the server.
  3. Click the Submit button to complete modifcations to the alias.
