    an sales/ad email send to [email protected] arrived my inbox, I own that domain, and setup catch-all for any email send to that domain...than I take a look on that domain, I figure out its .net version is a live site and its business do related with that email..I suspect that sales people know that person's name and email address and want send his promotion email to [email protected], but of couse, easily to send it to .com email address,

    ok, above is the story, but I am not sure what I should do...

    1. do nothing
    2. foward that email to [email protected]...
    3. foward that email to [email protected] and leverage this as a chance to sell my .com domain to that .net business...
    4. any other advise.

    thanks for your advise :)

    Great opportunity to leverage! I agree #3 is the way to go.

    Question for you:
    As a non-programmer, is there a free and easy way to do this myself?

    RE: Catch-all email address for a domain you own

    I haven't done this in a super long time, but I do remember the few times I did, it was free using Google Apps (I'm guessing it's called G Suite now). The process involved configuring a setting or two in the Admin Console.

    If you're not using Google for your domains (like in the example above), it might involve doing something similar in the domain control panel. Usually in the mail config section there's a "catch-all" setting (or instructions to insert an asterisk someplace). Often, the option is to either allow or discard email coming to addresses that haven't been explicitly created.

    I'm sure there are other ways it can be done. I just vaguely remember doing it before, it serving it's purpose and not costing anything. Hopefully this will get you going in the right direction (or someone will give a more detailed response).

    Thanks @Bertrell

    After posting I decided to stop being lazy and actually try to find the answer myself. :)

    Found a great site for this. Quite easy to set up! https://improvmx.com/
