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 mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain 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 some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it’s really user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete email address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the same fashion you’ll be able to turn off the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter any feature automatically and without your permission.
