Much like a previous question: Add email alias for custom domain with out verification, how can I verify the alias fullname@example.com under the account name@example.com when the alias is not an email account?

Contrary to what the previous answer suggests, the email is nowhere to be seen in the name@example.com inbox (as expected, surely?).

It's crazy that you need to verify an alias on the same domain. Is there any other way to have email from fullname@example.com forwarded to my primary address, without having to:

  1. Create another account and configure forwarding (which expires after 365 days without login), or;
  2. Temporarily change MX records to another mail server in order to pick up mail for fullname@example.com.
