A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message 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get emails from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox with ease in case you’ve got a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet really easy to work with, and it will permit 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 set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without any difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a mini symbol conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With just one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option using the context menu that will surface. If any of the requirements for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
