We provide email aliases on the fedoraproject.org domain to all contributors who have signed the CLA and are a member of at least one non-CLA group.
Getting Your Aliases
In order to get your email aliases, you must create an account in the Fedora Account System . You must also sign the Contributor License Agreement.
Once your account is ready, you will get aliases based upon the following template:
Your aliases will forward to whatever email address you have registered in the Account System. If ever you need to change the address your mail forwards to, that is the place to do it.
You will not be provided with any sort of POP, IMAP, or web-based email access. You will not be provided with any mail storage. These aliases are forwarding-only. In order to send mail 'from' these addresses, you must set the
From header on your email from your current email client. Many free web-based email services do not offer this ability, so you may need to establish an account elsewhere to gain this ability. The necessary configuration steps vary for each email client, so you are on your own to figure out how to do this.
These clients are known to allow explicit
From headers, which allows your email to appear as being 'from' your aliases.

To set an E-Mail Alias in Evolution, you simply create a new account with the following properties:
- E-mail Address: email alias (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org)
- In Mail Server: none
- Out Mail Server: that of your service provider
- Set the other Out Mail Server' options, as requested by yuor service provider
If any of the above listings are inaccurate, or if you have additional information, please update this list!
