A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For example, a 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. Thus, you can get email messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 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 delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few features, but it is stunningly simple to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated 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 select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a given domain, you will get a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or edit anything automatically.
