A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the 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 enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only 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 point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without effort if you have a website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet amazingly simple to work with, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you will find a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking on it again will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will find a small button handily situated right next to each one. With only a single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature through the context menu that will surface. If any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
