A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain 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 point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be exceptionally easy if you have a cloud website hosting plan with our company. You can enable this option through our powerful, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you if a certain mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a small-size symbol handily situated directly next to each of them. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate the feature through the context menu that will pop up. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will warn you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
