Catch-all

A Catch-all for email, usually refers to a mailbox on a domain that will “catch all” of the emails addressed to the domain that do not exist in the mail server. Configuring a catch-all address can help avoid losing emails due to misspelling.

For example: if jamee@jaamee.com is configured to be the catch-all email address on jaamee.com, then any email sent to an undefined@jaamee.com email address will be forwarded to jamee@jaamee.com instead of being rejected as an Undeliverable message or Unknown User error.

You can only set one catch-all email address per domain. So it’s better to set the Administrator email address as the catch-all.
