A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered 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messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only 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 a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few functions, but it is amazingly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another click on the same button.
