A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled 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get messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be stunningly easy if you have a Linux shared hosting with us. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you have set up listed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a particular mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll receive an alert from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
