A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
