A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux web hosting with us and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it will take literally just one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
