A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one 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 begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be quite easy if you have a Linux shared website hosting package with our company. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager, which is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately inform you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you’ve created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you do not need the feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
