A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled 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receive emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled.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 set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it is very user-friendly, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and requires one more click on the very same button.
