A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few functions, but it’s surprisingly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a tiny icon handily located right next to each of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the contextual menu that will come into view. If any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
