A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the same domain name. For instance, a message 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. Thus, you can receive messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just 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 point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting package with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a certain email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox easily even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you have set up with your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not want the feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
