A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled 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 email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is remarkably intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated 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 some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the exact same button.
