Where is the Settings for my alias

I have a prefix on my account I.E. something.fastmail.net. Where do I manage "something" and can I have more than one?

The Settings area has changed over the last few years, I can't find it.

Thanks

You should be able to find "something@fastmail.net" in the settings either under "My email addresses" or under "Team & Sharing" in the "Team addresses" tab.

For me, not using a personal domain with Fastmail, the definition of my primary email address - if you like the email address I use when I log on to FM's webmail - is shown in Settings - SET UP - Billing & Plan

But it is editable as - for me - the sole user shown in Settings - SET UP - Team & Sharing (which is a misleading section name for anyone who doesn't have what they'd think of as a "team").

Like many users here, I don't use that address for sending any of my mails - I try to keep it totally secret.

For me, if I edit that sole user, one of the things shown within its definition is the list of 20 or so other email addresses I can receive email for (all of which are defined as various lefthand names @ one or other of FM's many public domains - you don't just have to use a single righthnd part). That list of subsidiary email addresses is also available at Settings - SET UP - My email addresses.


To your question of whether you can have other "somethings". Yes, up to 600 of them (fewer I think if you still have a "legacy plan"). Each time you define one you pick one of FM's many public domains, then attempt to specify some lefthand part eg if you were really keen on oranges you might try to define "fanoforanges" @ whatever public domain you'd chosen. You'd get it if no other FM user is already using it. Mail arriving addressed to that address would (by default) be routed to the folders that belong to your account, ie those currently associated with your primary email address.
