A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email 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. Thus, you can receive emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a web 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 few functions, but it’s unbelievably easy to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular address. Our system will notify you if there is 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 deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the very same button.
