A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from partners 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 deleted. Just one 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 some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting service with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you wish. If there’s activated email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have created using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you do not need this feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
