A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just 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 due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be very easy in case you’ve got a website hosting plan with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, yet user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will get a warning message from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled with ease in case 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 your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a small-size sign handily located directly next to each one of them. With just a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature using the contextual menu that will pop up. In case any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
