The Accounts dialog box lets you enter accounts for a specific domain.
Accounts can be one of three types:
Note that the incoming address, "*", will match mail addressed to any users not listed in the incoming address list. This can be used to catch mis-addressed mail to the domain and bounce it, or forward it on to the domain's owner. This also permits your domain owners to use any user name they like, e.g., for special promotions, or other tracking devices, where a special mailbox name is set up. (There are over 2.8 trillion eight letter mailbox names if you use a-z and 0-9.)
List any outgoing address you to which you wish the incoming mail forwarded. For bounce and trash accounts, the Outgoing list is a notification list, and each recipient will recieve a notice that mail was bounced or trashed.
Forwarding one domain to another
If the incoming address *@indomain.com has an outgoing address of *@outdomain.com, incoming mail addressed to email@example.com will be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. This permits you to redirect an entire domain's email with one simple entry.
The Options button
The Options button takes you to a custom configuration screen for each incoming address. There you can setup options like: Auto Replies, Save to disk, Size limits, and other related items.
The TAB key moves back and forth between the two lists.
Hitting a key will quick scroll to an entry that matches the letter typed (e.g., hit "j" to get to an entry starting with "j").
Command-N selects New for the currently selected item in the currently active pane.
Command-X selects Del for the currently selected item in the currently active pane.
Command-D selects Dup for the currently selected item in the currently active pane.
Command-E selects Edit for the currently selected item in the currently active pane.
Command-F and G will perform a Find/Find Again in the active pane.
Command-O selects Options.
Use the arrow keys to move within the list boxes.
