A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox with ease in case you have a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet amazingly easy to work with, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you will find a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will need to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
