A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox with ease if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet amazingly easy to use, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with only a few mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking on it once again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
