A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 some point 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 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it’s amazingly intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be activated without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in the account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll find a mini icon handily situated right next to each one of them. With just a click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option using the menu that will come into sight. In case any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
