A catch-all mailbox receives 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 if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old 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 set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without effort in case you have a cloud web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet exceptionally intuitive, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it for a second time 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 feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox with ease even in case you don’t have much web/email 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 email address that you have created using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t need the feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
