A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email 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. Thus, you can receive messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old 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. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a cloud hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet astonishingly easy to use, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with just a few mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it twice will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting service with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses with any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
