A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from friends or customers 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 disabled. Just one mailbox per domain 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 some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all option for a certain email mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be activated without any difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a mini symbol conveniently situated directly next to each one. With only one single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option using the menu that will surface. In case any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will warn you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
