A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the miswritten [email protected] will go to [email protected] in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain 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 point you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be rather easy if you’ve got a cloud service with us. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared hosting account itself. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you whether a particular mailbox receives all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
