A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting service with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a small-size icon conveniently located right next to each one. With only one click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature using the contextual menu that will surface. In case any of the conditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will inform you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
