A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it is exceptionally simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the very same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or disable anything automatically.
