    Default Catch-All

    I was wondering if there was a way that I can set up a catch-all account, if user x does not exist send mail to catch-all account. I am using Zimrbra 5.0.4.
    I do no want valid user's email to go to this account.
    Thanks

    Yes, there's a wiki doc that explains how to set this up.

    Uh.. while this is possible.. I'd encourage you not to do that.. You're going to put a lot of unnecessary extra load on your system.

    From what I have seen, it's a total waste of time and resources. Once your domain gets out there and known, you'll get abcdef@domain.com abcde1@domain.com and so on. Spammers hitting random names like mad. I did that on my personal domain and it ate up the storage immensly fast, but hell, that was stored on Google.
