A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam emails 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 if you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet unbelievably intuitive, and it will allow you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking on it again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a tiny button conveniently situated right next to each one of them. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature using the contextual menu that will surface. In case any of the requirements for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
