New SmarterMail setup - Domain has _other user
Question asked by Dan - 12/24/2014 at 6:40 AM
Good Day,
    We are setting up several Domains that we host email for.  We went live with our first client on Monday and in looking at the Message Traffic reports we see a user "_other" listed that we do not remember creating.  It only has two inbound messages.  There is no Users or Alias in this domain with _other.
    Does anyone know what this is on the Message Traffic report? Thank you for any information.

The user "_other" on reports can be Aliases, but it also can represent Forwarders, Autoresponders, and NDR (non-deliverable responses) bounce-backs. Basically, "_other" is a categorical description for anything that is generating email traffic that is not an actual authenticated Account.
