A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the 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. 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messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of functions, but it is extremely intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the concrete address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be done in the same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never modify or disable any feature automatically.
