A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered 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 typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This 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 delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty if you have a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet incredibly user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you will see a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a mini symbol handily situated directly next to each of them. With just one click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature through the context menu that will come into sight. In case any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
