A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start 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 Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be quite easy in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created shown alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you whether a particular mailbox gets all the email messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you like. If there is active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll get an alert from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.
