A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you have a Linux website hosting package with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you have in your account, it will take literally just a mouse 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 registered in the account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
