A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For instance, 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. In this way, you can receive emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be very easy if you have a Linux web hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our powerful, yet user-friendly Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and to the right of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a specific mailbox receives all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you like. If there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
