Receive *@domain.com to administrator mailbox - 8.Nov.2000 5:08:00 PM   
Guest
I was previously using ISP whom had *@domain.com all routed to my pop mailbox. I now howt my own mail (almost) but have a problem. I need to receive ALL mail to @domain.com but don't want to set up an infinite number of ???@domain.com accounts. How can I set Exchange 5.5 to send all mail to a domain to go in administrator mailbox?

Thanks,

Tim

In the Internet Mail Service connector you can select an administrator mailbox.

Unfortunately that didn't work either. I selected administrator for Administrators mailbox and the only mail that comes in has to be addressed to administrator. I am losing mail that was send to anythingelse@domain.com. Any other suggestions?

In the Internet Mail Service, make sure the Notifications are selected. I use "Always send notifications" but the one you need specifically is "E-mail address could not be found".

I have the exact same issue. I have a client that wants NO mail to bounce. The method suggested above logs and send the log to the Admin. mail box, but it also sends a bounce mail back to the originator. I am now assuming that the ISP's that I have known to do this are not running exchange.

My problem is as Mickulz. I don't want any mail to get bounced back. I want all mail to go to one mailbox. This seems impossible in Exchange, but as Mickulz said, ISP's must not be using exchange for their customers domains. Anybody have a solution?

I am trying to do the same thing. I would rather come up with a way that avoids NDR altogether. I saw something about it once, but cant remember. please help.

Will this ever get answered? Can you avoid the NDR's and send *@domain.com to 1 mailbox without having anything get bounced back to sender?

It cannot be done in 5.5 though Im not sure that is true in 2000, technically it has to do this, by the RFC,

I have a similiar issue. We have several different email domains. I would like non-deliverable messages for each domain to go to a different mailbox ... postmaster@domain1.com, postmaster@domain2.com, etc.

Is this possible with Exchange 5.5?

You could use something like a unix/sendmail front end to preprocess the mail messages.

It would have to check the GAL, if the address is unknown change it to a generic account.

You then have an extra hop in your mail system, along with the extra problems that will bring.

NDR's are part of the RFC, you can't just disable them and remain compliant with the rest of the world, personally I like to get an NDR if I've addressed a message wrong. At least I know and can choose to do something about it, even if it's just send a note to the remote postmaster.

Yes, sure, noone _should_ disable NDRs to be sent!
But s/he _may_ check "Disable Automatic Replies to the Internet" option in "Advanced options" dialoge at Internet Mail page.

But ... this is a wrong way.
