    Default Catch All?

    Hi Folks

    Is there a way to have a "catch all" mailbox using Zimbra? For example, if any mail arrives on the server, for someone who doesn't have a mailbox account created, the mail should be forwarded to a "postmaster" account.

    Can Zimbra do this?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Yes you can use a catch-all but you really don't want to do that, it's a spammers dream and you'll be inundated with spam - I'd strongly advise against it. If you really want to implement one then search the wiki and forums for the details.

    Hi Bill

    Yeah - I know! However, we have customers who insist that we provide them with catch-all mailboxes for their domains and of course if we want to keep 'em then we have to do it.

    Any hints as to where I can find the info quickly would be much appreciated.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Search the wiki and/or forums for the word "catchall".

    Hi Bill

    Done the search. Got the info. Will attempt to fight off anyone who asks us to set up a catch-all!

    Cheers
