A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the same domain. 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 emails from friends 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 deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain name or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never change or deactivate any feature automatically and without your consent.
