A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from buddies or customers 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 deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain name 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 point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet really user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will see a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking on it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
