Catch-All Emails to be Disabled
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 12 December 2007 05:21 PM
Over the last 10 years we have enjoyed the use of an email feature called a Catch-All email addresses. This feature would give you the ability to accept email that wasn't specifically addresses to a particular person in your organization. This was useful if there was a typo in someone's email address. Unfortunately, this feature is also a spammer's dream as they can send millions of messages to accounts like these and using them in attacks on our mail server.

We process over 500,000 emails per day. However, less than 25% of these messages are legitimate.

To this end, we are discontinuing the use of catch-all email accounts on a global level. We will discontinue the catch-all feature on Friday December 14th. Please make any adjustments to your email accounts prior to that date.

If you are using the catch-all email feature, please disable according to the instructions below and replace with additional email forwards (aliases) as necessary.
