how reject or bounce mail on individual account

    How do I reject (preferred) or bounce (acceptable) email sent to a specific account?

    I'm moving my domain to a Plesk environment from an old shared host, and am trying to duplicate behaviors.

    I want misspelled addresses (such as typo@mydomain.com) to be redirected to a single account we can check (admin@mydomain.com), which is easy to do. But I then want to bounce or reject specific addresses (such as nolongerworkshere@mydomain.com or myspam@mydomain.com).

    This should be obvious and easy to do, but I can't see the options in Plesk....

    If you're not too bothered about the bounce you can just setup those as new mail names in Plesk, but not assign a mailbox/redirect/etc. to it. If you want a bounce message you can do the above but add an autoresponse. All mail to addresses configured in Plesk without a redirect/mailbox will be dropped silently.

    Thanks, Cranky.

    Of course reject would be better. Spammers have gotten ahold of a couple of these accounts, and I'd rather not add the round-trip traffic, or have them use the accounts to bounce spam to spoofed senders.

    If anyone from SWsoft is listening, please add this as a feature request ;)
