A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular email mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally only one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can choose one address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the exact same way and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or change any feature automatically.
