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 ‘’ with a nickname of ‘’. Is this correct?

if not, please can you explain.



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


I create a and 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!
