A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it’s remarkably simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click the "Catch-all" button for the given email address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name 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 choose another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a couple of clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a certain domain, you will receive a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or edit anything automatically.
