A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled 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 emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just 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 some moment you may start receiving spam emails 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 Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without any effort if you have a web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet really user-friendly, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking it again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have another one with this option enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
