A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter 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 limitation means that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it’ll take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
