I’m in the process of moving all our mail from a local intranet onto the Dreamhost servers so that we can take advantage of the new web-mail feature.
Currently, I have a one “catch-all” account on Dreamhost. The mail from this account gets picked up from our local mail server and then redistributed to local machines.
I’ve now setup 14 email boxes on the DH system, and have disabled the catch-all account. Well, instead of using the alias *, I’ve put ‘wil’ in there instead.
And now for my question: All mail addresses to email@example.com now goes to the mailbox ‘someone’ on the DH servers. If that mailbox exists - all is well. However, if the mailbox does not exist, then the mail will be bounced. I don’t want this. I want the mail to go through to a specifed account if no account for that domain was found.
I thought I could do this with keeping the catch-all alias “*” and forward that to my account - however, everyone’s mail started coming to that account isntead of just the ones that were addresses to mailboxes that didn’t exist on my domain.
So, is there a way to do this? That is, if the mailbox doesn’t exist, don’t bounce the message (or delete, -the two options currently there), but send the message onto a designated mailbox. Is this possible?
