What is that???

Also, how do I do this??

You should always have a valid postmaster@domain.com address or some domains may not accept email from you.

It almost sounds as though the email address in question is not fully fuctional at DH. Did you reecently create this email box? Contrary to DH panel messages, I have found it to take as long as 48 hours for the mailbox to be created on occasion. Can you reach the email address via webmail?

The creating a postmaster account part is easy.

From the control pannel, go to “mail”, then “manage addresses”. Click "Enter a Enter a new address, using “postmaster” as the name. Click the “Create a new email address” link.

In the “Email sent to” field, put in postmaster

Click the “will be delivered to these email addresses” radio button and enter the email address you want it delivered to (ie: bo@bo-amy.com).

Take the check out of the box “deliver to this mailbox:” and hit the create button at the bottom.

If someone emails postmaster at your domain, it will now be delivered to the bo account.

Creating one for “abuse” is always a spiffy idea too.
