How to configure bounce email messaging in SiteWorx

Overview
This article shows how Nexcess clients can use SiteWorx to enable or disable bounce messaging

Definition

SiteWorx provides a feature that allows you to control what happens when messages are sent to non-existent email accounts on your domain. For example, if the email account once existed, but has been removed or changed, a bounce message will inform the sender that the email address is no longer valid. Alternatively, you can enable email forwarding for the inactive email address.

Procedure

  1. Log in to your SiteWorx account.
  2. From the SiteWorx main menu, click Hosting Features > Email > Overview (Figure 1).


    Figure 1. SiteWorx main menu; Hosting Features > Email > Overview.

  3. The Bounce Messages section provides the following options:
    • On: Enables the bounce message feature, so when an email is sent to a non-existent email address on your domain, the sender is informed that the email address does not exist.
    • Off: The message sent to the nonexistent account is discarded, and no bounce message is sent to the sender. If this option is selected, the sender will not be notified that the email address is invalid.
    • Catchall: Messages are forwarded to a different email address specified by you. This is called a "catchall" address. No bounce message is sent to the sender.
  4. Click Save.
