A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact 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 messages from buddies or customers 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 single mailbox per domain name 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 a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails 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 Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without effort in case you have a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet surprisingly simple to use, and it will allow you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you will see a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking it again will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-created Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to configure a catch-all mailbox without effort even in case you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up with your domains in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know 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 decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
