A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to inactive addresses under the same domain name. For example, 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. In this way, you can receive emails from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared package with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you do not want this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
