A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam emails 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 Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud plan with our company and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be set up with several clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with us. The hosting account will be managed through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
