A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from pals or clients 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. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be truly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service with us. You can activate this feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately let you know whether a certain mailbox stores all the messages associated with a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any time. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll get a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
