A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. 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 so because of the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a few functions, but it is remarkably simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button for the specific address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling the feature can be done in the same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
