Sure.  People have multiple email addresses for different reasons.   The question was actually with aliases.  Maybe it is not possible to have all email consolidated to one box.
For example, if I want to have two mailboxes: and नलिनी (or नलिनी@[myidnserver].[myint ernationaltld]) all come to one mailbox is that possible?   Should it be possible?
I *think* people want that.   I think we will know as this all takes off.

This might look similar to the existing "custom from" feature.

Great!   Definitely a start!
If you would like to test out the alias feature, please let us know.   We will be happy to help.
