A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it’s really intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a click. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all email address for a certain domain name or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change any feature automatically and without your consent.
