The RidgeStarTerm Mail Server provides several mechanisms that can be utilized and configured to satisfy Client Email requirements. The precise configuration for each Client Domain is listed on the Client SiteTerm at Administrator: RidgeStar-Email (or equivalent) and can include one or more of the following Types of definitions:

Aliasalias
This is an additional Email address (at the left of the @ sign) that is directly associated with a Mailbox Type account. An Alias address can be considered to be a synonym for the established Mailbox. Any email sent to the Alias will be delivered to the Mailbox account.
Forwarderforwarder
This is an Email address (at the left of the @ sign) that is immediately rerouted to an alternate destination that may or may not be a RidgeStar email address. This is typically used when you are interested in supporting your own domain's email addresses, but desire them to be forwarded to an alternate address elsewhere, as sales@mycompany.com being forwarded to Bill342918@myisp.com.
Groupgroup
Is a set of Email addresses that can be referenced as a single Email address. The Mail Server will send a copy of the original Email message to each member of the Group. E.G. sales@mycompany.com can be a Group definition that will send copies of any received Email to Pam64836@myisp.com, Bill342918@myisp.com, and webmaster@myisp.com.
Listlist
A List entry references what is commonly known as a "List Service" and includes functions that permit other Email users to subscribe and unsubscribe from the List (typically, whenever they would like). Email sent to the List is redistributed to each subscriber of the List. E.G. specials@mycompany.com might be the Email address MyCompany sends late breaking sales items to. When received, the List will redistribute the original Email to each Subscriber to the List.
Mailboxmail
This is a full function POP3 account managed and maintained on the RidgeStar Mail Server. You can logon to this Account via the Browser Interface-> or access it through proper configuration of your desktop Mail Client (such as Outlook, Evolution, Eudora, etc.). The Mailbox Account name is exactly the same as the associated Email address, as myname@mycompany.com

For RidgeStar billing purposes (RSU computation), the Service identified as POP3 is a reference to the number of Mailbox entries, ListService is a reference to the number of List entries, and Email is a reference to the sum of Alias, Forwarder, and Group entries.
