A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be really easy in case you have a Linux web hosting service with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you whether a specific mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you wish. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll get a notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be enabled with ease if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be displayed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a tiny sign conveniently located directly next to each one. With only one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature through the context menu that will surface. If any of the requirements for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
