A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, 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. In this way, you can receive emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet incredibly user-friendly, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to turn off the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
