A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it is exceptionally easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will simply have to click the "Catch-all" button for the concrete email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the same button.
