A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, an email message 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 receive emails from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old 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 activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of features, but it’s stunningly simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the specific address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click on the button with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or deactivate any feature automatically.
