How to setup a catch-all account on the Qmail server

1. Login onto the Qmail server

2. Create a catchall mailbox like catchall@<domain>.com

3. Find out the domain directory with the command below-
[[email protected] ~]# ~vpopmail/bin/vdominfo <domain>.com

4. Edit the .qmail-default file as below:

[[email protected] ~]# vi /home/vpopmail/domains/<domain>.com/.qmail-default
Replace the line-
| /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' bounce-no-mailbox

With this line-
| /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' /home/vpopmail/domains/<domain>.com/catchall

5. Restart the qmail services
[[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/qmaild restart
