A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email 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. In this way, you can get email messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single 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 a certain 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 Website Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without effort if you have a website hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet surprisingly user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be shown alphabetically in this section and next to each one you will notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
