A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting plan with our company and you want to enable the catch-all feature for a given email mailbox that you have in the account, it’ll take literally just a 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 created under any domain hosted in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
