Default Address

Note: If your domain is targeted by spammers, forwarding mail to a default address is likely to yield a large amount of spam.

  2.  Go to the Mail tab > Click  Mail Settings > Click on your account’s domain.
    Change Settings

  3. You can choose what to do with emails sent to addresses that don’t exist, like “”.  You can:

    1. Bounce with message

      • This option will send a reply to the sender that lets them know the email address they sent the message to does not exist.

      • It is always a good idea to supply the sender with a correct email so they can contact you.

    2. Forward to address

      • This will forward emails sent to nonexistent addresses to whichever user email you choose.

    3. Reject

      • This option will simply delete any messages sent to an unused email address.
