How to set up Postmaster and Abuse aliases in MDaemon

Each domain hosted on your MDaemon server should have a postmaster and an abuse alias.  The steps below describe how to configure the aliases.

From the MDaemon menu bar:

  1. Click Accounts
  2. Click Account Settings...
  3. Click Aliases on the left
  4. In the New alias field enter postmaster@example.com, where example.com is your domain name (Alternatively, enter postmaster@$LOCALDOMAIN$ to match any domain registered in MDaemon)
  5. In the Actual address field, type in the email address that should receive messages addressed to the postmaster (This is usually the email administrator's address). Alternatively, use the drop-down menu to choose an account setup in MDaemon.
  6. Click Add 
  7. Repeat steps 3 and 6 for abuse@example.com
  8. Click Ok
