A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only 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 re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty in case you have a cloud website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet surprisingly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a tiny logo handily located directly next to each one of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option using the menu that will show up. If any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
