A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled 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 emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared plan with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a certain e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this option can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or deactivate any feature automatically.
