Default Address

Default Address creates a “catch” system for any mail that is sent to an invalid email address. An example would be if joe@sample.tld were sent an email and no “joe” account existed, the Default Address settings would be used.

The options of the Default Address interface allow website owners to:

  • Discard with error to sender (including custom message)
  • Forward to email address (catch all account)
  • Forward to the website owner’s system account
  • Pipe to a program (run a custom script)
  • Discard the email
