A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to inactive addresses under the same domain name. 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 email messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared package with us and you would like to enable the catch-all feature for a particular e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a few clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes under any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be done in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change any feature automatically.
