A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam messages 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 Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud website hosting service with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a given email 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 accomplish this. 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 hosted in your account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to create a catch-all email mailbox without any efforts even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have set up with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already configured another 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 want this feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
