Question: How do I create a second email address ?

I want to create a second email address so that email relating to a business does not go into my private email box. I know we used to be able to create alias for this but Apple stopped it


I don't want to create a new Apple ID, password two stage authentication again. I want to keep it as simple as possible.


Any solutions please.


Thank you

Go to iCloud.com/Mail, click on the gear at the bottom left, and then select Preferences. Then click Accounts. You can add an alias there. All e-mails addressed to any iCloud e-mail address will end up in the iCloud inbox unless you create a rule to place them somewhere else.

You are welcome. Based on my experience, all iCloud e-mails go to the iCloud inbox. You could create a rule in Mail/Preferences/Rules to direct the e-mail to the desired inbox. In the screen shot below, put the alias address in the To contains line and where 'No mailbox selected' shows, choose the desired inbox.
