    Default Misaddressed Email

    Where would I set a setting that email that is misaddressed gets delivered to? For example, if an email for supradave@domain.com was misaddressed like superdave@domain.com, I don't want it to bounce, but want it delivered to a specific list or account.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    The easiest thing to do would be to add that address as an alias of the account you want to receive it, flush the queue when you've added the alias and it should get there.

    I'm not looking for a specific address. I'm looking to set it for any incoming misaddressed email. As some people are unable to remember (for some reason) their email address or the sender hasn't listened well enough, I need to be able to collect and deliver misaddressed email.

    Bouncing email is a potential spam launch point.

    Not if it's legitimate it isn't. The alternative is to have a catch-all address (which is possible - search the wiki & the forums) which is a spammers dream, you'll get all the spam that's sent to your server in that address - the 'cure' is worse than the disease.

    spammer die for server which allow cacth-all
    dont do it..
    dont worry about people who misaddressed they will get bounce and if they really intrested to send you email they will find correct email somehow.

    cacth-all is a much worse problem moreover it will not deliver to the correct account..it will delivery all misaddressed to 1 box, which iam sure will get thousands of spam a day once spammers know..give and take 1 week
