Adding an email alias in Box - called a Linked Email Address - makes sense in certain cases when a person is collaborating with different groups of people for different reasons or if your email address has recently changed. People will be able to collaborate with you using a familiar alias. For example: a user may be known as when collaborating with colleagues throughout the University, but may also be known as when collaborating with biology peers outside of the University.
