Support address

What is a support address?

A support address is an email address your customers can use to contact you in case they need help. It is the address where most customer service representatives handle customer requests.

Generally, a support address consists of keywords like info, help, support, welcome, hello, or others. Following is the “@” and your domain name. Here are a couple of examples of support addresses:

  • support@liveagent.com
  • help@liveagent.com
  • info@liveagent.com

If you use ticketing software, you can create tickets from requests and notification emails sent to this address. With features like the universal inbox, all your outgoing and incoming emails are stored in one convenient place, so your agents don’t have to check multiple communication channels.

Why is it important to have a support address?

When you run a customer-centric business, offering clients a way to reach you is imperative. Support address allows them to contact you, submit service requests, bring issues to your attention, and ask questions. Your support address often functions as a distribution group email address, as it should be accessible to all your support agents.
