A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain name. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux hosting package with us and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
