A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive 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 if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud hosting package with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
