|Permanent and Easy
Our email program is a forwarding system, and any messages sent to your flightphysical.com address will automatically arrive at your regular email account. We do not store messages, and outbound mail service (SMTP) is only included with premium packages. With inbound alias service, you can view messages addressed to your @flightphysical.com address and reply from your current email outbound sending service (gmail, etc) without changing any of your current settings or email retrieval practices. Importantly, our service gives you a stable email address. As you change your ISP or other "POP" or IMAP email accounts from time to time, you do not have to worry about your FlightPhysical.com address changing as long as you remain active with us (annual confirmations). Your pilots will have a consistent address through which to contact you. This also means that you'll never have to throw away business cards and stationary just because your e-mail account changes. Your FlightPhysical.com address is always current! Just notify us anytime and we will change the forwarding destination(s). Email permanence is critical when promoting your practice.
In the past, we have offered auto-responders for advanced users, but as of 2023, their usage has become unpopular because of their propensity to trigger spam alerts which would reduce your email reputation in the modern era of SPF, DKIM and DMARC systems for combating spoofers and spammers. If you have a special need for an automated reply system, please contact us for domain compatible options.
|Get Noticed with Professional Email
Also, by using our addresses, you project a professional image as Aerospace Medicine Specialist. In these days of SPAM and unsolicited email messages, much of a busy pilot's email will get appropriately screened and never even reach the recipient's inbox. A descriptive email address is essential, so you and your message's importance will be obvious as recipients scan their electronic inboxes. Messages from complex email addresses seldom make it past automated and human spam filters. These unwanted messages often use unintuitive and complicated addresses such as email@example.com.
Tips for Using our Alias Addresses
For those of you using an ISP for Internet access, be sure to configure your e-mail software to show your FlightPhysical.com or FlightMD.com address in the "from" and "reply to" address fields. By doing so, even when you send outgoing e-mail only your professional address will be displayed to the recipient.
Your email addresses are not case sensitive. You can change your forwarding destinations at any time, and you can have multiple forwarding destinations.
A final note on Spam and Privacy
Email is very prone to abuse. Some email addresses must be retired because they have made it on so many spam lists. Experts recommend that you never put a link to your email account on a public web site. We will leave that up to you, but your actual POP or IMAP inbound account will never be published or released. For example if you use Bob@FlightPhysical.com alias email to forward to your GMail address, then we recommend you never publish your destination (Gmail) address and highly caution against placing your alias address online because it can be harvested easily by spambots and this can flood your inbox. We will not publish or sell your alias or destination email accounts. All email addresses are strictly guarded with multiple security layers to balance your availabilty to your public correspondents while adequately protecting your privacy.
Your true email address is hidden behind multiple layers of hacker resistant security systems. For your protection, we only release our own email aliases through your web sites, and only with your express permission. When we do post your FlightMD.com or FlightPhysical.com email address, the messages are forwarded behind the scenes to your preferred destination account. This deters hackers and email spam-list builders. There are many other advantages to this policy...for you the primarily benefit is email permanence, but limiting our liability and maintaining easy alias address changes (spam dodging) are equally important.
