Set Up a Default Address

1. Select the domain for which you wish to set up a default address.

2. Click one of the following options:

- Forward to email address — Enter the address in the text box. You do not need to type “@” and the domain name.

- Discard with error to sender — Enter an error message for the sender to read.

3. You can also click Advanced Options to:

- Discard incoming messages without an automatic response.

Note: This option is not recommended since the sender will be unaware that the delivery failed.

- Automatically forward messages to a program by defining a path to the program, for example /home/$utility, in the Pipe to a Program field.

- Forward incoming messages to your system account.

4. Click the Change button.

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