    Hopefully I am not kick-banned for asking such a simple question, but the cpanel help was a bit too vague to help me out.

    All i want to do it set up a catchall email, the help just says:

    "The first option is to "Send all unrouted e-mail for" a particular domain. Choose the domain you want to setup the "catch-all" email from the drop down menu. Then choose one of the following options: "

    I can't find any options to send all unrouted email anywhere, where do I go in my cpanel to find this?

    Again I apologize, but any help would be appreciated

    If you are a cpanel user and not the hosting provider, your host may have disabled setting the default address, as catch-alls are a bad idea. Otherwise, it would be "Default Address" in the mail section of the domain's cpanel.

    Just be aware that using a catch-all means you will get a ton of spam, wasting bandwidth, processor, and disk space. Don't worry about people sending to mispelled addresses - any legitimate sender will receive a bounce from their mail server (unless they also mispelled their own email address, in which case you can't reply anyway).

    Ahh I see I see, can anyone point me in the direction of a host who does allow it?
