A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from colleagues 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 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 a certain moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting with us and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally only one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve 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 pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not want this feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
