A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s stunningly intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox easily even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have set up with your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t want the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
