A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from mates or customers 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. 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 a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you’ve got a shared hosting package with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your account. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you have created enumerated alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know if a particular mailbox gets all the messages for a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be activated effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a tiny symbol conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With only one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature using the menu that will come into sight. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
