A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete 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 due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be very easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you if a specific mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you wish. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox with ease even if you don’t 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’ve created using your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you do not want this feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
