A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be rather easy in case you’ve got a website hosting with our company. You can activate this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the shared hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have set up shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you whether a certain mailbox stores all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you like. If there is activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses under any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will have to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a given domain, you will receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
