A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just 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 start receiving spam 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 Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few features, but it is really easy to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will simply have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
