A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty if you have a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet extremely easy to use, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses using any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the icon with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be done in the same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain, you will receive a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
