Creating catch-all email accounts

  • Answered

I've been using catch-all function on my previous provider, but cant find that option anywhere in cPanel to setup now. Please assist.

To avoid large influxes of spam coming to the servers, catch all email accounts are disabled on shared hosting. Instead, you may set up forwarders if you would like multiple addresses to go to the same inbox. Within a VPS or dedicated environment, catch all email accounts can be enabled within cPanel by clicking on Default Address under the Mail section. I do, however, highly recommend against catch all email accounts as this can cause a very high amount of spam to come into your account and both increases your inbox size quickly, as well as increases server load from the processing of mass amounts of spam.
