Email functions can seem quite overwhelming and similar at the same time, no worries as we will explain the exact differences between Catch-All Email, Forwarders, and Email Aliases.
What is a Catch-All Email?
Catch-All Email - is a feature that allows you to catch any emails sent to the misspelled or invalid email addresses (but correct domain name). For example, you have only one address email@example.com, but someone sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Normally, this email would be lost, but with the Catch-All Email feature, you are able to catch all that was sent to you as long as the domain is spelled correctly.
In Hostinger Emails Catch-all can be found in the Emails → domain name → Forwarders page:

What is Email Forwarder?
Forwarders - is a feature that forwards emails from one of your addresses to absolutely any other email address (even from a different domain). You are also able to save a copy of forwarded emails. In hPanel, you can find Forwarders under the Emails → domain name → Forwarders page:

What is Email Alias?
Email Aliases - is a feature that allows you to set alternative names for some of your email accounts. For example, you have an email account named email@example.com and you create 3 aliases for it sales1, sales2, sales3, if your client sends you an email to one of these email accounts that email will be forwarded to the main firstname.lastname@example.org account. And you are also able to reply with the same address.
In Hostinger Emails you can create an alias at the Emails → domain name → Email Alias page:
