This address will receive any mail sent to an invalid email address for the current domain. The default address is also commonly called a “catch-all address.”

Set Up a Default Address

To set up your default address:

  1. Select the domain for which you wish to set up a default address.
  2. Click one of the following options:
    • Forward to email address — Enter the address in the text box. You do not need to type “@” and the domain name.
    • Discard with error to sender — Enter an error message for the sender to read.
  3. You can also click Advanced Options to:
    • Discard incoming messages without an automatic response.
      Note: This option is not recommended since the sender will be unaware that the delivery failed.
    • Automatically forward messages to a program by defining a path to the program, for example /home/$utility, in the Pipe to a Program field.
    • Forward incoming messages to your system account.
  4. Click the Change button.
