A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled [email protected] will go to [email protected] if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up 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 implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it is unbelievably simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The hosting account will be managed through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll need to click the sign with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this feature can be done in the same way and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will receive a notification. 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 change anything automatically.
