Can I receive emails to my Substack email address from my subscribers only?

To only receive emails from your subscribers to your Substack email address (subdomain@substack.com), follow these two steps.

1. Head to your Settings page and scroll to "Receive email replies to your posts from".

2. Select "All subscribers" from the dropdown box.

Why would I change my settings?

If your email replies setting is currently set to "Everyone", then anyone can email you at your @substack.com author alias.

There have been instances of email alias spoofing in which a spammer can send a message using your @substack.com author alias (to a list of non-subscriber addresses the spammer has acquired outside of Substack). If you have your setting set to "Everyone", you may receive email replies from non-readers to a spam email that was sent by a spammer.
