A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort in case you have a hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet really easy to use, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be displayed alphabetically in this section and next to each one you will see a small-size "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
