A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten firstname.lastname@example.org will go to email@example.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name 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 point you may begin receiving spam email 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 Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a website hosting
account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it is remarkably simple to work with, so setting up 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 will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
