A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped [email protected] will be delivered to [email protected] if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from partners or customers 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. Just one 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 some moment 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 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting plan with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
