    Hello,

    I Just created my icloud alias

    1. Can we use this alias as our iMessages account ?
    2. I tried to add "send from" with this new alias, but either on my mac or iPhone showed this new alias. Can anyone help me ?
    3. If I can use this alias, is that mean, I can only choose one to use (my new alias, or my iCloud id) ?
    4. if someone who knew my origin icloud id, then he/she iMessage me to my origin icloud id, will I received the messages ?

    thx

    Did you set this also as an email alias? The reason I ask it I created an alias email address (which I wish I would have created as my actual email address) and I was able to add that to iMessage.

    Yes, i even changed my “send from” to this alias at my icloud mail preference

    Not sure If i missed some steps or not. The alias does not appear at the “send and receive”

    Did you add the alias via your Apple ID account?
