A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up 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 sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be quite easy in case you have a Linux hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you have created listed in alphabetical order and next to each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly show you whether a certain mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you like. In case there is active email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
