i just wanted to ask, if the Catchall-Agent also recognizes Distributionlists, Aliases of MailBoxes and Contacts as valid users, or if Emails to D-Groups, Aliases and Contacts will be redirected to the CatchAll-Mailbox?


Best regards

Yes, it will also rewrite group addresses. It rewrites for any address it can find in the address book, and the objects that you mention are in there.

There is a catch, which I think is something that not a lot people would want. Suppsoe you send a message to groupA@domain, and groupA has the following membership: groupB@domain and userA@domain. If either groupB or userA has a redirect but groupA does not, the catchall will not rewrite any. If the message goes immediately to groupB or userA, the address will be rewritten.
