If you have a custom domain, you can add arbitrary email addresses in your
domain. An email address may forward to any other email address on the
Internet. To simply cause an email address to forward to your mail account,
specify your username as the destination. Here are some examples:
email@example.com => joe firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org => joeIf you do not have a custom domain, you can still forward mail for any hyphenated suffix of your email address. (See also: (Old) Email Hyphenated Suffixes.) For example:
email@example.com => joeuser firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org => joeuserYou can also cause mail arriving for an email address to be rejected, by forwarding that email address to the special token "fail". This may optionally be followed by a colon and an error message. The sender of the failed email will see the error message when his mail fails. Examples are below.
email@example.com => fail firstname.lastname@example.org => fail:Joe is no longer here email@example.com => fail:Bill has moved to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com => firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com => fail:I am no longer in schoolWhen incoming mail is rejected due to the use of the "fail" token as above, our network refuses to accept the message, by returning an SMTP error code during the SMTP transaction. No bounce message is sent back, since the original incoming message is never accepted in the first place.
firstname.lastname@example.org => fail:I no longer have an office email@example.com => fail:Joe is no longer in school firstname.lastname@example.org => fail:No such person
