A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one 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 begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be truly easy in case you have a Linux cloud package with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit intuitive Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you if a particular mailbox receives all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. If there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will get a notification from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated effortlessly if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will find a mini button handily 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 provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature using the contextual menu that will come into view. If any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
