What is Email Forwarding?
Email forwarding is just like receiving mail at an old address and the mailman forwards it on to your new mailbox. You can set up email from webmaster@yoursite.com to go directly to your joe@hotmail.com account. This way you only have to check one email account (mailbox) to receive all your mail.

What are Auto Responders?
Auto responders are a great tool for providing your customers with instant feedback. When customers send you an email, you can set up an auto responder to send them an automatic email message saying "Thanks for your email."

What is Email Alias?
Email alias allow you to set up many different emails to be sent to a POP email account. Maybe you want an address for support@yoursite.com and marketing@yoursite.com, but you will be checking email for both support and marketing. An email alias allows you to use multiple email addresses to be sent to an individual POP email account.

TTL - Time To Live
