A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 mailbox per domain name 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 start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If 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 functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s stunningly easy to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the given 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 activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the exact same button.
