A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of functions, but it’s really intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
