    Hi Everyone,

    I'm on 11.34x and have a question about catch all. I am sure many of you to avoid SPAM use emails such as google@domain.com and cpanel@domain.com all going to one email account. This works great for spam because when companies like lastfm had a breach, I just send that email address into a black hole.

    My question comes around replying. If my primary mailbox/catch all address is admin@domain.com and I receive an email from companyx@domain.com; when I reply to that email from outlook 2013 it comes from my admin@domain.com account, exposing my real address.

    Is there a way to reply from companyx@domain.com without going to create an account, setting it up in outlook then replying?

    Thanks!

    You are basically asking how you might spoof the right sender address with another address, correct?

    Assuming you mean "use forwards" instead of "use emails" in that sentence.


    You can, when replying to one of those emails, in Outlook for example, click the Options item at top of the New Reply window in Outlook, and then select "Direct Replies to" and add an email address there for the user to respond to you properly.

    Not perfect, but would work. A better suggestion might be to only use those forwards (fake emails) for specific things that you don't need to reply to regularly, and real emails for those you will.
