Defualt Address (Catch-all Email Address)

The default or catch-all address is the one to which all e-mails, addressed to a non-available or mistakenly entered email account at your domain name are routed to.

In case someone sends an email to info@yourdomain.com and you do not have such mailbox, the catch-all option will forward this email to your default email address.

Step 1 : To access the auto responders menu, click on the Default Address icon on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

Step 2 : From the drop-down menu select the (sub)domain for which you would like to set up a default address.

Step 3 : Now you have several options

>> You can forward all unrouted mail to an email address; in this case, you should type in the address in the field.
>> You can discard all unrouted mail with an error to the senders; in this case you should type in the message which will be sent to the senders.
>> From the Advanced Options you can discard all unrouted mail, pipe it to a program or forward it to the system account.

Step 4 : Click Change to apply your settings.
