A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a 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 get messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of 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 re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it’s incredibly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button for the specific email 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 enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated service with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will inform you if you are attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a certain domain name or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter anything automatically or without your permission.
