A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox easily if you have a shared hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet surprisingly user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
