A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without any effort if you’ve got a shared hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet extremely intuitive, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be shown alphabetically in this section and next to each one of them you will see a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking on it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be activated with ease if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have created with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a tiny sign conveniently located directly next to each one. With only a click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature through the menu that will show up. In case any of the requirements for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
