A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from mates or customers 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. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox easily if you have a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only a few clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you will notice a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled easily if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in your account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a small-size icon conveniently situated right next to each one of them. With only one single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature through the context menu that will come into view. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
