A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux web hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular email mailbox that you have in the account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you have created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already set up another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you don’t need this feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
