A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a 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 emails from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be created with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this option can be accomplished in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or disable anything automatically.
