A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the misspelled 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from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just 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 a certain point you may start receiving spam 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting package with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally just a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a particular domain name, 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 alter or deactivate anything automatically.
