A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy in case you have a Linux web hosting package with our company. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created displayed alphabetically and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a certain mailbox gets all the emails for a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will receive a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
