How To Set Up a Catch-All Email Account in Plesk

In this article, you'll learn what a Catch-All email account is and how to set it up via Plesk. You'll also discover how it can make your email management more convenient and efficient.

A Catch-All email account is basically an inbox that is set up to receive all emails sent to incorrect or non-existent email addresses within a domain.

For example, your domain is mydomain.com and you have created 3 personalised email addresses on that domain (e.g., [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]). You can set 1 of those 3 valid email addresses as a Catch-All email account.

If you set up [email protected] as your Catch-All email account, messages sent to misspelled or non-existent addresses like [email protected] or [email protected] will all be routed to [email protected].
