A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. 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 due to 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 re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is really easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the same button.
