Virtual Recipients are recipients that are not directly mapped to recipient mailboxes. For example, if you have an Internal Recipient firstname.lastname@example.org but you also want the email address email@example.com to deliver email to firstname.lastname@example.org, you would set up a virtual address of email@example.com to deliver to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, Virtual Recipients are not only limited to Hermes SEG 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 email@example.com to deliver to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Any email destined for a virtual recipient are NOT processed by the Bayes Spam Filter. In other words, email will not be checked for spam.
