How To Create a Send-Only Address in Plesk


We plan to have WordPress send email notifications to our readers, but we don't want a spammer stuffing our inbox full because they picked up the address from somewhere.

To create an email address that will be send-only (never receive any messages):

Note: These examples are using Plesk 18. The steps will be the same for other versions of Plesk; however, the button locations may differ.
  1. Log in to Plesk.
  2. Navigate to the domain name where you will create the email address in the Websites and Domains section.

  3. Click on the  Mail Accounts icon. 

    Mail Accounts Button

  4. Click on the Create Email Address button.

  5. Name the account Bounces.
  6. In the Password field, enter a password so that the sending application can authenticate.
  7. Keep the Mailbox checkbox unchecked.

    Create Email Settings

  8. Click OK.

Voila! Now have a send-only email address configured!
