A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email sent to the miswritten 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 get email messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled.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 mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting plan with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to configure a catch-all email mailbox easily even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
