A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. 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 enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox easily in case you’ve got a web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet really simple to use, and it will permit you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one you’ll find a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking it once more will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you will need to click the symbol with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or deactivate any feature automatically.
