Is there a way to let the user know that they have sent email to a wrong address?  Print this Article

Yes. The default address feature in cPanel can alert a user that they have sent an email to an invalid address.

  1. Access the Default Address feature in cPanel (Home >> Mail >> Default Address).
  2. Choose the Discard with error to sender (at SMTP time).
  3. Enter the message that the mail sender will see in Failure Message (seen by sender): text box.

Note: This will only work for people who send email to your domain. Each domain on the Internet has different configuration options so if you send mail to a wrong address on a different domain may return a different error message.
