A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be truly easy in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet user-friendly Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown alphabetically and on the right side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly let you know whether a certain mailbox receives all the emails associated with a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you wish. In case there is activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
