How do I CC another email address on account-related correspondence from AWS?

1 minute read

I'd like a copy of my account-related emails to be sent to another email address, as well as the root email address associated with my account.


You can designate a specific email address to receive account-related correspondence by adding that email address as an alternate contact in your AWS account. For instructions, see Adding, changing, or removing alternate contacts.

The available alternate contact types are Billing, Operations, and Security. Each email address added to the account receives correspondence only related to their contact type. For example, a Billing alternate contact receives notifications of finalized AWS bills.

This information is incomplete. The billing alternate contact does receive the bills, but there is a way to add more than one alternate email address. Please see
