"No Reply" email addresses query

Re lesson 4, how exactly does "noreply" @mysite work? Is it just a deterrent or have I missed something with the setup ? I sent a mail to another address I have, tried replying, and there it was the reply, in my "noreply" inbox...

Mostly it's just a deterrent. You can create an email account that you send your emails from, but which you don't actually use for regular correspondence, and which doesn't forward to your main email address. The other thing you can do is send from your usual account, but use "noreply@yoursite.com" as the "reply to" address. If that account doesn't exist, when people try to reply to the email their email will get bounced back to them.

But yeah, you'll still find that people reply sometimes.

All the best,
Mark
