A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from pals 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 disabled. Only one mailbox per domain 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 point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it’s remarkably user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the very same way and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain name, you will get a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or change anything automatically.
