A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one mailbox per domain name 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 point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet stunningly intuitive, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you will find a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain name, you will get a warning note. 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 alter anything automatically.
