A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single 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 moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox easily in case you have a shared website hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet amazingly easy to work with, and it will enable you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll find a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each mailbox that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you do not want the feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
