A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain 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 moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without effort if you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet extremely simple to use, and it will enable you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just several mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking on it once again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already got a different one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
