    Ah my bad I think I found it..should have looked at the site earlier before posting on to the forum.
    It can be achieved by

    Domain Catchall

    If you want to set up an account "user@domain.com" to catch any mail not delivered to existing users in the domain "domain.com", you can configure the account as a domain catchall.

    su - zimbra
    zmprov modifyAccount user@domain.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @domain.com

    If the users "john@domain.com", "webmaster@domain.com", and "xyznobody@domain.com" don't exist, and mail arrives for them, it will be delivered to the catchall account "user@domain.com". This will increase the amount of spam delivered, and can lead to being blacklisted. To remove the catchall from an email account, unset the catchall address:

    zmprov modifyAccount user@domain.com zimbraMailCatchallAddress ""

    That is the wrong solution to the problem. A 'catchall' means you will be a spam target, it's what spammers love to send and you will be unable to stop spam from arriving at your server. If you're having a problem with NDR spam then search the forums (start with a search for "ndr") and/or implement some of the techniques for stopping it.

    I see...so how can I stop bounced back message from my system? Imagin the scenario if I would like to study the internal email topology I would send email to any non-existent account by whihc system would generate bounced back and offcourse which will have critical information like internal addresses system information and all that stuff.

    Default Issues with Spam is it because of Catchall?

    I need assistant I am getting a lot of deferred emails and increasingly incoming emails in the queue about 40 thousands... I have being bombarded with spam. I had two mail boxes one acting as a relay for outgoing email which was seating on a freebsd box. We noticed that the freebsd box was sending out spam emails. Now I want to turn off the freebsd box acting as a relay, but I had a catchall setup. I am in a dark situation. Can someone help me...please?

    Search for backscatter in this forum or wiki Or postfix with backscatter in google. Enforce those and you should be good.

    Before I make any conclusion, I will have to post my log to get the right help before digging to the backscatter issue. Is that okay?
