Managing Email CatchAll

WARNING !!! Catch-alls are an invitation to spammers. We HIGHLY recommend that you set your Catchall to “Discard with error to sender (at SMTP time)” as this will bounce back all emails sent to your domain without a proper email address.  

NOTE: People who are emailing you for legitimate reasons do not just randomly pick an email address.

#1. After Logging Into your Control Panel, Click on the “Default Address” Icon.

#2. From the “Send all unrouted email for:” Drop Down Menu select the Domain you are setting the Catch-All up for (applicable only if you have add-on domains or sub-domains).

#3. Choose what to do with Unrouted Emails. To Bounce Back any mail that is sent to an invalid email address for your domain Select the “Discard with error to sender (at SMTP time)”. To send all default mail to the main mail account, Select: “Forward to email address” type the username of your cPanel account into the “Forward to email address” field, OR to forward the email to another email address type in the Email Address you wish to Forward the email to.

WARNING !!! Forwarding Catch-All Email to an ISP Email Address or to any Free Email Account (Aol, Comcast, Earthlink, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc) will most likely eventually result in your emails being blocked.
