A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from buddies or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling 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 set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet exceptionally easy to use, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be listed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will permit you to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you have set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you have already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not want this feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
