A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, 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 enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be astonishingly easy in case you have a Linux web hosting with our company. You can activate this option through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you have created listed in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you if a particular mailbox receives all the messages for a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
