A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email 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 pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared package with us. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the account itself. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you have created listed alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox gets all the messages associated with a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your permission.
