A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. 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 implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, albeit intuitive Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you whether a specific mailbox stores all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you like. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will receive an alert from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
