Hi,

I want to route unrouted emails to the specific email address. Lets say I have two different mailboxes. One mailbox is used for my personal email firstname.lastname@domain.com. Now I would like to use the another box to catch all unrouted emails send to example info@domain.com, sales@domain.com, whatever@domain.com. How I do that with webfaction?

You can use a mailbox, e-mail address, or script as the target for a e-mail address. And you can have more than 1 target. So firstname.lastname@domain.com -> mailbox1 and info@domain.com, sales@domain.com, whatever@domain.com -> mailbox2. Our documentation on this may be found here,

Ok, this is how I understood from the docs. But what I am after is that I want to have mailbox2 where all the emails send to *@domain.com will go.

firstname.lastname@domain.com -> mailbox1 info@domain.com -> mailbox2

this far ok. But now example if someone sends email to address marketing@domain.com or some other address I have not configured email address or mailbox I want to route it to mailbox2. Can this be done?

Ah damit. Now I got it :) Seems to be too late to read any instruction properly.

From documentation: "First part of the e-mail address, before the @ leave blank to use wildcard..." thats the answer.

Thanks!

I think the control panel has changed and you have to put a '*' in the part before the '@' now.
