A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a warning notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to set up a catch-all mailbox without any difficulties even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you have created using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
