A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can receive emails from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete 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 set up for such a mailbox. This 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 redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet stunningly intuitive, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you will notice a small-size "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it once more will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a small-size icon conveniently located right next to each of them. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option using the contextual menu that will pop up. In case any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
