A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case 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 typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s extremely intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you’ve created using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you have already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not want the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
