A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you have a cloud web hosting plan with us. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your shared web hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a specific mailbox gets all the email messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you will receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will allow you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
