How do I turn on/off the catch-all email address for Email Hosting?

By default, the catch-all email address is turned off for Dynadot's Email Hosting. However, it is a good idea to turn on the catch all because if it is enabled, email that is not addressed to a mailbox you have set up (including typos) will be delivered to your default mailbox.

To enable or disable catch-all, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Hosting" from the left-side menu bar.
  3. Click on the "Edit Website" link under the "Edit Site" column. A new page should load in a new browser window.
  4. In your Email Hosting web space, click on the "Admin" link in the main menu.
  5. Click on the "Mailbox Admin" link in the sub-menu. Find out why "Mailbox Admin" may not appear.
  6. Click on the "System Settings" link in the light blue box.
  7. Select the email address you'd like to receive the "catch-all emails" from the drop down to enable it in our system. If you'd like to disable catch-all, select "none" from the drop down.
  8. Click on the "Save Changes" button to save your settings.
