I am using my iPhone 4 when sending emails via iCloud. I recently installed iOS 5 on it. When sending emails, I am using different “aliases” to protect my account from spam or fraud. My question is how can I send emails without using my main account? I want to use my aliases instead of my main account to hide my identity. Any ideas? Thanks.
How to send emails using “alias” via iCloud?
Email aliases are like pseudonym that you can use to send or receive messages which is not separate from your real iCloud email address and its main purpose is to protect your account against intruders wherein they manipulate iCloud email accounts to send spam or junk email to your contacts. I've done a little research about your query and found out that if you have an existing MobileMe account and you join iCloud, aliases that are stored on MobileMe will automatically be acquired by iCloud. Thus, once it's moved to iCloud, you cannot change nor edit the aliases but you can delete them and once it's removed you can't replace it with another alias.
