A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox with ease if you have a cloud hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet amazingly user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking on it once again will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
