A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive 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. In this way, you can receive email messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few functions, but it’s astonishingly easy to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated without any difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will see a small-size logo handily situated right next to each one of them. With just one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option through the context menu that will surface. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
