A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the misspelled 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 typo or to an obsolete 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 set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s unbelievably easy to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the given email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox with ease even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you’ve set up with your domains in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you reach the decision that you do not need this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
