Using a Catch-All

This feature is only available to domain administrators.

A catch-all alias can be established that can receive all incoming email that goes to invalid email addresses within your domain. You may want to do this, for example, if customers frequently send to accounts that do not really exist. In general, however, use of a catch-all alias is not recommended, as it makes you more prone to harvesting attacks.

For information on setting up and assigning a catch-all alias, refer to the KB article How To -- Enable or Disable Catch-alls.

Note: It is important to never set an auto-responder on an email account that the catch-all forwards to, as it may result in spammers sending more email to your domain. In addition, an increase in bandwidth usage will result. If you do not see the option for adding a catch-all, please contact your system administrator as they may have disabled the option.
