Standard "dead letter bin" email address?

    Is there such a thing as an Internet standard "dead letter bin" email address? I mean, something that when you send an email to the message is sent without a bounce error but just deleted at the receiving end. I figured there'd be something like that at the example.com domain. But my messages have bounced back. I need this for training purposes where folks need to go through the motions of sending an email.

    Thanks,

    I think Hsphere has an option to delete all incoming mail, or it used to at least...yes it is there 'discard all incoming mail'

    So you could make such an address :)

    Thanks. I was hoping some part of RFC 2606 included email. But, I guess that would mean they'd have to deal with handling the volume of incoming mail traffic, even if it were routed to dev/null.

    I found that bit-bucket@smtp.org is the sort of dead-letter bin I was looking for. Mail sent to it is simply discarded.
