10.3 Server: Create a postfix catch-all email account
Authored by: searcher on Nov 13, '03 05:33:30PM

I agree w/ mcroft on this. If anyone chooses to use this catchall email go for it, it's your domain and mailserver. Choice is what makes the 'Net great. I find it to be a PITA though.

Not only does it breed inaccuracy, like mentioned above, but it also allows more spam in. Since the domain will accept mail to <anything>@domain.com, spam will definately increase. Compare the amount of messages rejected for "User unknown" w/ and w/out the catchall.
