A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a 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 receive messages from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point 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 Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet astonishingly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one of them you will see a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking on it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
