Virtual Recipients

If you have an Internal Recipient joe@domain.tld but you also want the email address joe.smoe@domain.tld to deliver email to joe@domain.tld, you would set up a virtual address of joe.smoe@domain.tld to deliver to joe@domain.tld. Please note, Virtual Recipients are not only limited to Internal Recipients. You can also create a Virtual Recipient to deliver email to an outside email address not handled by Hermes SEG. In the above example, we can easily setup joe.smoe@domain.tld to deliver to

Any email destined for a virtual recipient are NOT checked by the spam filter.
