A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from partners 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 can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be really easy if you’ve got a shared hosting with us. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-use Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your account. You will find all the email addresses that you’ve set up enumerated alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously inform you whether a particular mailbox receives all the email messages pertaining to a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. If there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will receive a warning note from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your consent.
