A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one mailbox per domain name 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 a certain moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up listed in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately let you know if a particular mailbox stores all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you like. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will get a warning from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create using any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will notify you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a particular domain name or if there’s active email forwarding, but it will never modify or disable anything automatically or without your approval.
