Hello,
I have a Yahoo email account. I would like to add an email alias however this option is missing.
I have gone to Mailboxes menu, I can see options to add an external email account, add Send-only email address and and a disposable email but there is no option to add an email alias which is really what i want to do.
How do i resolve this pls or Is this a bug?

Thanks

Hi,
Thanks for the response.
Unfortunately, it did not resolve my issue.
I am using the full featured version of yahoo and I have switched between the basic mail and newest Yahoo Mail to be sure.

The option 'Email Alias' is simply not listed under Mailboxes.

I have two yahoo email accounts. I can see 'Email Alias' in one account but not the other account where i need it so this is definitely missing / not listed for selection.

I would appreciate any other solution pls

Have you already created an email alias with that account?

Hi,

Perhaps my previous post wasn't clear but there is no button/menu called 'Email Alias' so i haven't actioned it in any way.
An Email Alias was never created as the menu never existed.

I have 2 completely different yahoo email accounts.
When I log into one email account, I can see the menu to create Email Alias.
However when i log into the 2nd yahoo email account that menu does not exist.
My question is - why is the Email alias menu missing from the 2nd yahoo email account? Is this a technical bug?

Thanks
