Invoices from IONOS are always automatically sent to the email address you have specified in your contact details. If you set an additional email address for receiving invoices in your account details, a copy of your invoices and payment-related information will automatically be sent to this second email address. This gives you the option of having your invoices and payment-related information sent to two different email addresses at the same time.
If you want to receive your invoices as an email attachment, we need your consent. How you can do this is described in the following article: Downloading invoices at IONOS
Information about the structure of your IONOS invoice can be found in the following article: Structure of the IONOS Invoices
