Each address can specify ticket field values for every newly created ticket (i.e. owner, milestone, component, version, etc.). Email addresses can also be configured to be public (accepting email from anyone) or they can be limited to only accept mail from those users explicitly involved in the project.

To configure email addresses for your account, simply visit the "Account Settings" page and click the "Incoming Emails" menu item.
