A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from acquaintances 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. Just 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 email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be really easy if you have a Linux shared service with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your hosting account. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up shown in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages pertaining to a given domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get a notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the very same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or replace any feature automatically.
