A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one 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 point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared web hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a specific e-mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will have to click the button with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this option can be done in the same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or modify any feature automatically.
