A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting with us and you want to enable the catch-all feature for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
