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email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a certain e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
