A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. 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 some point you may begin receiving spam email 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 Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the very same fashion and will not take more than one click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or modify anything automatically.
