A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one 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 a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages 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 Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty in case you have a hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet unbelievably easy to work with, and it will enable you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you will see a small "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking on it twice will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
