A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. 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 a certain point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you have a Linux website hosting service with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally just one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled easily if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domain names hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll notice a small button conveniently located directly next to each of them. With only a mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the menu that will come into view. In case any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
