A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. 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 some moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be surprisingly easy if you have a cloud website hosting service with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared hosting account. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know if a specific mailbox receives all the emails associated with a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option at any time. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will get a notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your consent.
