A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email 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 get emails from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain 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 moment you may start receiving spam emails 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 Cloud Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be extremely easy if you’ve got a cloud hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you whether a particular mailbox stores all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any time. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with several clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will need to click on the button with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain, you will receive a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or modify anything automatically.
