Email setup in Dreamhost

I am looking at the email address setup and from my understanding my best strategy if I don’t want emails rejected is to make it ‘postmaster@mydomain.com’ with a nickname of ‘nickname@mydomain.com’. Is this correct?

if not, please can you explain.

Not sure exactly what you’re asking. The suggestion, I believe, is to have a "postmaster@mydomain.com" mailbox in addition your preferred "nickname@mydomain.com" email address.

I create a postmaster@example.com and abuse@example.com that are set to “deleted without bounce.” The sender will never know they’re going straight to the trash.

Thank you - this is very helpful. I think I get it!
