A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux website hosting service with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a certain e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated with ease if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in your account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a mini icon handily situated right next to each one of them. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option using the menu that will surface. If any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
