A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only 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 restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be astonishingly easy in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the web hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately inform you whether a certain mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. If there is active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to create a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you’ve set up using your domains in the Email Manager section of the 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 another 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 disable it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
