A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting package with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can select one single address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
