A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped 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 email messages from acquaintances or customers 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. This is due to the fact that at some moment 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 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not need the feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
