ME020229 - HOWTO: How to configure a catch-all mailbox for a domain


How to configure a catch-all mailbox for a domain.


A catch-all mailbox can be configured for each domain registered under each post office.

The catch-all will receive any mail messages that are destined for mail addresses not explicitly registered under MailEnable.

This is done via the MailEnable Administration program (instructions follow):

  1. Open the MailEnable Administration program
  2. Under the Messaging Manager branch, expand the Postoffices and Domain tree until you locate the domain to configure a catch-all mailbox for.
  3. Open the Properties of this domain and select the mailbox that is to receive all mail destined for undefined addresses.
