A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain name 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 messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of functions, but it is exceptionally easy to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another click on the exact same button.
