A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped 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 get messages from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be unbelievably easy in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly tell you if a specific mailbox stores all the emails associated with a certain domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option at any moment. In case there is active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
