Yes! Click on "Create a redirect (alias)" on the web admin.

You can try it with the demo account:

Thanks for your answer. And how to set up a catch-all email alias?

Just curious as to why anyone would want to do that? It seems like a surefire way to receive lots of SPAM and phishing emails.

I have a catch-all alias in one of my domains and receive very few spam/phishing emails there, unlike at some of my "individual" addresses. Your mileage may vary.

By definition a catch-all alias receives email sent to any address at the domain, which means it can't receive less email than if you just had one address at the same domain. Lots and lots of SPAM and phishing emails are sent to addresses like [email protected] or [email protected] If you don't have those addresses you won't get those emails.

I didn't make it clear: for the domain in question I have a number of "individual" addresses and a catch-all address. The catch-all mail is routed to a dedicated real address..

Hi Donat,

Sorry for the late reply, I somehow don't receive notifications of answers despite having enabled it.

For the catch-all, connect to the admin interface with a domain administrator and go to:

your Domain -> Show -> Edit settings -> Domain bin

The "Domain bin" is your catch-all address.

Did you confirm the e-mail address?

I did. But right now it actually worked, I got the mail. No idea why. I checked but had nothing in spams before.

EDIT: maybe I get the notifications only if someone quote me.
EDIT 2: I get all the notifications now (note: I subscribed with my personal Gmail account, nothing related to postale.io).

Companies change their products all the time. There is no reason email service providers are any different. I doubt a single year has gone by that our cable tv provider doesn't change their offering and up the price.
