A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some 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 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a certain email mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it’ll take literally only a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be activated with ease in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a small-size button handily situated right next to each one of them. With just one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the menu that will come into view. If any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
