A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just 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 some moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting plan with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will show a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
