Email aliases (pseudonyms, temporary email addresses)

Note: Email aliases are only available to Hushmail Premium subscribers.

An email alias (or pseudonym) is a special email address ending in @nym.hush.com which is associated with your Hushmail account.

You can send email from an email alias, and any email sent to your email alias will be delivered to your Hushmail account. You can create as many email aliases as you like.

Email aliases are useful in situations where you do not want to reveal your real email address, such as sign up forms on websites.

To create an email alias:

  1. Sign in to Hushmail and select Preferences from the menu in the top-right
  2. Select the Email Aliases tab
  3. Enter the email address you would like to use, then click Save

  3. Click the Delete this alias link

Please note that once you create an alias, it is linked to your email address. Even if you delete the alias within your account, no one else will be able to use that alias in the future, and you can recreate the deleted alias from within your account at any time.
