Use the Default Address interface to set up a default address, or catch-all address, that receives any mail that users send to an invalid email address for the domain.
(Home >> Email >> Default Address)
This interface allows you to set up a default address (catch-all address) that receives any mail for an invalid email address for the domain. You can also define how the default address handles incoming messages.
Note: If spammers target your domain, and you forward mail to a default address, that address may receive a large amount of spam.
To set a default address for your domain, perform the following steps:
Select one of the following options:
Forward to Email Address — Select this option to forward mail to another address. Enter the email address or your cPanel account's username in the Forward to Email Address text box.
Pipe to a Program — Select this option to forward messages to a program at the path that you define in the available text box.
Discard (Not Recommended) — Select this option to delete incoming messages without a failure notice.
Important: We do not recommend this option, because the sender will not know that the delivery failed.
