What is an email alias?

Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions faculty and staff generally receive emails using their JHED ID followed by @jhu.edu or @jhmi.edu. Email aliases are addresses that allow you to forward emails from one mail account to another. They are often used as a replacement for long or difficult to remember addresses.
