A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without effort if you’ve got a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet surprisingly user-friendly, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be shown alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you will find a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking on it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
