A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped 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 emails from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo 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 some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort in case you’ve got a hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be listed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or alter any feature automatically.
