A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled 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 emails from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain name 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 some moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few features, but it’s amazingly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a single click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with our company. The hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the very same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a notification. 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 disable or edit any feature automatically.
