A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just 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 email 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 Website Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet astonishingly user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you already have a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.
