A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the same domain. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten 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 messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single 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 a certain point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without any effort if you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet surprisingly simple to use, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will notice a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated effortlessly in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will see a small sign conveniently located right next to each one of them. With just a single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate the feature through the context menu that will appear. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
