A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be stunningly easy if you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately show you if a specific mailbox stores all the messages for a given domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you like. In case there is active email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll get a notification from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a particular domain name or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically and without your consent.
