Hi all,
Due to Paradise cancelling my account (due to them not processing the cc payment authority I faxed them in time), I temporally updated my email forwarding to another email address I have. My domain is held with 1st Domains, and, I previously had a global or wildcard address forwarded (i.e. anything@ was forwarded to my email address - not mydomain is an example only). Anyway, after deleting my global email forwarder, I attempted to add a new one but was greeted with the error message "The * ('Global' or 'WildCard') address can no longer be added as an forwarder.". This is a problem for me, as, I have used all sorts of different names so can not cover them all (or even, remember them all).
Does anyone know of a registrar that allows wildcard address forwarding that I can move my domain to?
I's also like to be able to manage cname records, and, not be signifigantly more expensive.

Hi Daniel

If you had a catch-all configured on your domain originally, we usually don't mind setting this up for you again if you have accidentally removed it for some reason. If you contact me directly with the details e.g the domain and what email to forward to I will get this configured for you.

It's just new domains we don't allow it for. Causes all sorts of issues with customers getting dictionary attacked and then we in turn forward it on to ISPs like Xtra for them to block us :)

As above - the catch all address has been re-instated to the account so that's good.

Good service.
