A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only 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 so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s extremely intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
