A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from acquaintances or customers 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. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be unbelievably easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared web hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created displayed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you if a specific mailbox gets all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you wish. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
