A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the same domain. 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 enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name 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 a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it is very simple to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the respective email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox easily even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have set up with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not need this feature any longer, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
