+ - Ask Slashdot: Which Email Providers Support Wildcard addresses & filter spam 1

tiznom (1602661) writes "I'm currently using Google Apps free with a custom domain. I have a wildcard / catch-all filter set so I can use most anything to the left of the @ sign and it still reaches me. Spam isn't an issue.

I've used company_name@my_domain.com for ages. It's too much trouble to go back and update all the accounts to change them all to my real address.

I want to move off of Google Apps. Paid services are no problem. I can't find any email services that both allow anything@my_domain.com PLUS do spam filtering on the catch-all addresses. Are there any out there?"

Ask Slashdot: Which Email Providers Support Wildcard addresses & filter spam

Comments Filter:
  • I have my @my-domain.com forward all email to my Yahoo Mail account (yes I know). I then filter based on everything before the @ to move it into specific folders, or spam. Has worked very well for the last 10 years. I can even set up multiple From address too if I need to.

Never worry about theory as long as the machinery does what it's supposed to do. -- R. A. Heinlein
