A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For example, 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. In this way, you can get messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name 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 moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a certain email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it will take literally only one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a small logo conveniently situated directly next to each one. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option through the contextual menu that will come into sight. In case any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
