create catch-all email address

overview

Through the catch-all default address setting lesson, you will learn how all emails are routed to a specific address if an email account is unavailable or incorrectly entered. If someone sends an email to info@yourdomain.com and you don’t have one, the pickup option will forward that email to your default email address.

What is a catch-all email account?

A catch-all email for a domain is the mailbox that will catch all the emails sent to a user that is not present on the server for a domain name. For example, if you are receiving an email to user@yourdomain.com where there is no such mailbox as a “user” in the server for the domain yourdomain.com, then with a catch-all email address configured, all emails will end up at that domain.

Steps to set catch-all email

  1. Log in to your cPanel account.
  2.  Navigate to Mail section > Default Address menu.
  3. On the new page choose a domain name from the drop-down menu, check option Forward to the email address, and enter email address to which emails will be forwarded.
  4. Click on Change to save the change.
