A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be unbelievably easy in case you have a Linux website hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a particular mailbox gets all the email messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. If there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting 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 semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to turn off the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re trying to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a given domain or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change any feature automatically or without your permission.
