    Default Redirect misspelled addresses to certain mailbox

    I have a domain and few mail addresses on it.
    I want that if some send us email to nonexisting address, he doesn't get baunce back, but insted of this the mail gets redirected to speciffic address.

    Is this possible with Zimbra 5.0 ?

    That's not the way it's supposed to work and if you made such a change you'd end up with tons of spam in your mailboxes.

    Why not ?

    If there will be a lot of spam, we can still enable bounce back.

    Email transport isn't designed to accept an 'almost correct' email address.

    No, you won't. The only way to do it is to enable a catchall account that will accept mail for any address and they are a prime target for spammers and, by definition, they will accept all mail that mis-addressed and arrives at your server - you can't bounce any of it. If you feel lucky search the forums and wiki for the word 'catchall' and redirect mail from that account to a valid account with filters - I believe you'll find it's more effort that it's worth.
