A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email 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 deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty in case you’ve got a hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet exceptionally intuitive, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one of them you will see a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will activate this feature, clicking on it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes using any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you’ll need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll receive a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
